What is the history behind fireworks on the Fourth of July?

Fireworks on the Fourth of July date back to 1777.

The first Independence Day was celebrated on July 4, 1777, one year after signing the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on that day, a party was held which included a 13-gun salute, in honor of the 13 colonies, where fireworks were set off in the town square.

The tradition has continued ever since and Americans still celebrate their independence with a fireworks show.
