Many communities will present fireworks displays tonight, but the area’s largest can be found in Roanoke. It’s part of the annual July 4th Roanoke Times Music for Americans celebration. News/Talk 960’s Evan Jones has more on this year’s program.[audio:https://wfirnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/07-04-Fireworks-Wrap1-WEB.mp3|titles=07-04 Fireworks Wrap1-WEB]
Fireworks return to the Salem Fair for tonight only. They used to be a nightly attraction at the fair but had been discontinued in recent years after some new buildings went up near the fairgrounds. This year’s fireworks shells will be smaller in size to meet fire codes and the presence of those nearby buildings.
