July 4th Fireworks Near Pittsburg KS
Whew. What a year that was, huh? Now that everything appears to be returning to normal – or as close to normal as it can get during a pandemic – it's time to enjoy our first big summer holiday: Fourth of July! (Can you tell that we’re excited?)

Yet even with this new sense of normalcy, some of the area’s best Independence Day events from 2020 are off the books this year. (But some are still going strong.) Here’s where you can see July 4th fireworks around Pittsburg, KS in 2021.

Joplin Independence Day Celebration

Worried about mingling with a bunch of other people? No problem. You can watch the Joplin fireworks display from inside your vehicle within the MSSU parking lot.

Pittsburg July 4th Celebration

The official Pittsburg July 4th event is back on this year, with two days of activities scheduled.

On July 3, Kiddieland opens (yay for parents who need a break!), vendors start selling, and a special Baby Contest will go on. What that entails, we don’t know; but it should be pretty cute.

On July 4, the magic kicks up a notch. The morning starts with a BYOP (Bring Your Own Pole) fishing derby, the Rollin’ Nostalgia Car Show, a bike ride, RC airplane shows, Zumbathon, a dog show, bocce ball, and more live entertainment and activities.

Everything culminates with a Pittsburg fireworks display that’s sure to blow the lid off Lincoln Park (the park, not the band).

Seneca’s 4th of July Celebration

July 2 and 3 will be reserved for Seneca’s “Party in the Park” celebration. A car cruise-in, 5k run, and parade are all on the docket, as is a pie auction brought to you by the local fire department. Once the sun goes down, the lights turn on thanks to Seneca’s largest July 4th fireworks display. It’ll be a doozy.
