Area fireworks shows
The booms, bangs and bright lights associated with fireworks will continue in North Branch this year, thanks to a donation from the North Branch Fire Relief Association.
The show will start at dusk at North Branch Area High School.
In nearby Cambridge, the Independence Day fireworks show will be held at the Isanti County Fairgrounds, also at dusk.
In Forest Lake, the grand show off the lake can be seen from numerous vantage points in town, but it’s best to view the fireworks from the beach near Highway 61 starting at 10 p.m.
