Celebrate Our Freedom
Fireworks have been used for 4th of July celebrations for many years. According to eHow, the first time fireworks were used to celebrate July 4th was on July 8th, 1776.

The next year, on July 4th, 1777, the first official July 4th celebration was held. This day was celebrated with the firing of guns, cannons, bonfires and fireworks. Philadelphia was the first city to celebrate July 4th in this manner (which was the capitol of the United States at the time). Other cities soon took up the practice of firing guns and fireworks on July 4th as well.
