With the 4th of July coming up this weekend, there are several concerns as to will there be enough fireworks to celebrate our country's birthday.?

I used to buy fireworks all the time and just light them in my driveway.  But due to safety reasons I decided not to do that anymore.

According to the Lansing State Journal:

Firework sales in 2020 left Phantom Fireworks and many of their competitors with the lowest inventory levels they've ever had, said Alan Zoldan, executive vice president of the Youngstown, Ohio, company.

I personally haven't seen any shortage of fireworks anywhere.  In fact, I drove to Menards over this past weekend and I saw two locations where people had a whole bunch of fireworks sitting on tables ready to be sold.

I do know that some stores do have low inventory and might sell out before this coming 4th of July weekend.

But let's look at this in a positive way, if you can't find any fireworks to play with, think of the money you'll be saving and the fact that you don't have to worry about someone's safety.

Besides, I don't know about you, but I like going to the big fireworks shows throughout Michigan.

You'll be able to see fireworks right here in Lansing as well as Jackson, Eaton Rapids, Portland, Frankenmuth, Grand Rapids, Mackinac Island, Ionia, Coldwater, and even Carson City.

There's nothing better than watching huge displays of fireworks light up the skies with the most beautiful vibrant colors.

And can we talk about the grand finale?  Is there anything better than this.  I remember spending the 4th of July in Mackinaw City not only watching fireworks there, but also over Mackinac Island.  It was spectacular!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
