Multiple Jersey Shore towns, including Wildwood (above), are offering fireworks displays on July Fourth.

The Fourth of July wouldn't be complete without watching a colorful, flashy fireworks display light up the summer night sky.

In Philly, Wawa Welcome America promises parades, concerts and fireworks on the holiday. But the droves of people who are fleeing the city for the Jersey Shore will also have plenty of opportunities to take part in the patriotic tradition.
