Baby you’re a firework, come on, let your colors burst!! ~Katy Perry~

It’s difficult to find joy these days. Between Austin businesses being shutdown permanently, thousands of Austinites out of work, constant fear, face masks, and all the unmentioned things in between, if I hear we are in unprecedented times again, I may lose it. Alas, we are in unprecedented times and it’s just weird, y’all. Fourth of July is a time to celebrate and even if our July 4, 2020 is going to look a bit….different… it’s still worth celebrating.

Here are some top spots to watch fireworks and other events in Austin this social distancing year.
