While Fourth of July celebrations don’t get as rowdy as they did back in the 1700s (dumping tea in Boston Harbor sounds electric), these events are an awesome and fun way to celebrate our country’s independence from British rule way back in 1776.

There’s a little something for everyone here, ranging from parades to festivals, 5K’s and fireworks shows. Let’s just hope your pup doesn’t get too scared from fireworks ?

Without any further ado, here are the best Fourth of July Celebrations happening in Central Ohio!

Note: We are still adding more events as we find them. If there is still an event missing, please contact us.
