Lake Sunapee Region Fireworks and Event Schedule 2017

Their are two types of people in this world; the kind that enjoy the fireworks from a safe distance with a drink in hand and the pyro’s who know fireworks by name and are heroic enough to light them off for all to enjoy! Whether you enjoy the 4th from the sidelines by the grill, or are all in, this is an article you will want to bookmark to ensure you, your friends and family are in the know for all of the Fourth of July festivities!

Are the big shows on the Fourth just not enough? Below is a list of great places to buy and stock up your personal arsenal of fireworks! All of these locations have something in common, they want you to have a ton of fun, but more importantly, they all want you to be safe while doing it! Ask any of these associates the safest way to light these fireworks off so your Fourth memories don’t only consist of – “Remember that year uncle Paul lit his hair on fire?”
