It is going to be an absolutely beautiful, incredible 4th of July holiday weekend.  There are fireworks celebrations around the tristate this weekend, including Diamond Lake's annual fireworks show Saturday night.  By the way, organizers say this year's show could be THE biggest in Daviess County.

Then, Sunday night, the City of Owensboro's hosting its annual All-American 4th of July Celebration, which will feature fireworks launching from four different sites in town- the Ohio River, Centre Court/Shifley Park, Owensboro Sportscenter/Moreland Park and the former GE Plant.  That show will launch at 9:15pm.  And, fun fact!  The WBKR app will be airing the exclusive soundtrack to the show.  As you watch the fireworks, we'll be streaming the soundtrack for you.  If you have the app, you're all set.  If you don't, download it now!

However, if you're looking to catch fireworks tonight, Pleasant Grove Baptist Church has just what Yankee Doodle ordered.  They're hosting a huge Family & Fireworks Night this evening.

Former WBKR midday personality Jaclyn Graves attends Pleasant Grove and shared the scoop on social media!

As you can see, the event is completely FREE of charge and gets underway at 7:30pm.  There will be free hamburger and hot dog meals, inflatables and more.

Plus, there will be music, a dance party for the kids and, as with every 4th of July party, there will be fireworks!  The fireworks will hit the sky at dusk (around 9pm).

Pleasant Grove Baptist Church is located at 5664 Hwy 56 in Owensboro.

Ten Fireworks You Need for Your 4th of July Celebration

With 4th of July just around the corner, I decided to share a list of some of my favorite fireworks on the market right now. Some are brand new. Some have been around forever and continue to maintain their popularity. But, if you're planning to host a 4th of July party or you're taking fireworks to one, check this out. Fun fact. I sold fireworks for years and years and have helped plan hundreds of fireworks shows. Here are ten fireworks that will absolutely light up the sky and your Independence Day celebration. And, the best part, these are all available commercially. #LetFreedomRing
