Fireworks DisplayThe Fourth of July is a great occasion to enjoy the company of family and good friends, eat great food, and celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence with visually stunning fireworks displays. While fun to watch, fireworks can be hazardous to the environment around them. The explosions and colorful light displays are often created using various heavy metals, sulfur-coal compounds, and other noxious chemicals.
