2013 July 4th Fireworks Displays In Buffalo

This July 4th, you have a choice. You can be the guy who drives to Pennsylvania and buys your own overpriced fireworks out of those yellow tents on the side of the thruway, or you can be that smart guy who goes to the real fireworks shows around Buffalo, thereby guaranteeing awesome sights and no injuries. For once, be the smart guy.

Western New York’s numerous fireworks displays kicked off this past weekend at West Seneca’s Community Days, but if you missed it, don’t worry — you’ll have plenty of other opportunities to see fireworks in the Buffalo area between now and the Fourth of July. You can even join Joy FM at the Erie Canal Harbor on July 4th for music, family activities and, of course, fireworks. The fun begins at 6 p.m.

All fireworks displays on this list begin at dusk — between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. or so — unless noted.
