This summer is shaping up to be far better than anything we saw in 2020. Let's face it, last year was a huge bummer and featured a massive amount of canceled events, fairs, and festivals throughout Western New York.

Every summer, one of the things families look forward to the most is the various fireworks displays that take place every 4th of July and the surrounding days. Here in Western New York, there are a ton of great fireworks displays in the City of Buffalo, northtowns, southtowns, and anywhere in-between. Unfortunately, many of them were canceled in 2020.

But there's hope many of those firework shows will take place in 2021 for the 4th of July.

When I was growing up in Amherst, we often went to the fireworks show at UB's North Campus. There was a lot of space to find a spot and the fireworks were amazing. Another spot I've been to is Woodlawn Beach, and any fireworks show on the water is a great idea.

What are some of the best firework shows in Western New York that we hope to take place this summer? Here are seven of them and they're already getting me in the mood for summer fun.
