(WJW) —This Fourth of July, the big booms are once again headed back to Northeast Ohio. Not only in backyards (the state signed new legislation making them legal starting July 1, with some cities still opting out ), but also in big, professional fireworks displays.

Some local fireworks shows canceled, postponed due to weather

The pandemic put many city events on hold or made them smaller, but this year, they’re mostly back in full bloom.
