We're less than a week away from the Fourth of July holiday and let's be honest, there are few holiday weekends as awesome as the Fourth of July weekend.

Not only are there so many things you could be doing around Western New York, but the weather is usually great too. The forecasts are calling for the mid-70s and sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday, after a scare last week that we might get plenty of rain.

Although there won't be quite as many firework shows this year as a normal Fourth of July weekend, it will be way more than 2020, which featured next to none.

Some towns have their fireworks back for the Fourth of July this weekend, such as the Town of Tonawanda and Lancaster, which are always some of the most popular in Western New York. Hyde Park in Niagara Falls will also be returning with a fireworks show.
