Fireworks are a big part of any Fourth of July Celebration — it seems more and more regular Joe’s think they are pyrotechnic experts and are firing off professional grade fireworks in their backyards lately. But many spectators prefer and appreciate the actual town or city run shows, like what we heard in Milford on Friday, or saw in Orange last night.

Here are some photos from the Orange Fireworks. Do you see any of your favorites?
