Des Moines Fireworks




Fireworks are a hallmark of the 4th of July. While some fireworks shows are canceled or postponed this year, there are still fireworks happening in Des Moines and central Iowa in 2020.

Every family feels differently about what is safe right now, so use your best judgment and make sure to follow city and state guidelines while you’re out and about. 

It’s also a good idea to check web sites/social media for the locations you’ll be visiting since statuses and policies are constantly changing.

We also have a FREE 4th of July downloadable from XO-LP for kids to color! Check it out below.
