You can watch from all over the area, but place like Promenade Park and Hensville will provide good viewing.
So, mostly you know about the fireworks that you usually go to and enjoy. Our family usually will go see the Bowling Green. Fireworks on July 3rd. And that is what we are planning for tomorrow night. We sit on the intramural field near the Hockey arena. Their show starts at 10 pm and the fireworks shoot off near the football field.
Perrysburg and Maumee
One of the other area community fireworks to check out, are done by Maumee and Perrysburg. We use to go to these on the 3rd and then BG on the 4th but BG's changed their date a few years ago. I am not sure where would be good to watch the Fireworks on the Maumee side. On the Perrysburg side there is good viewing from Fort Meigs. They have food vendors and carnival rides on the fort grounds, and you can take lawn chairs into the Fort. Parking at the Fort, is $5 per car and $20 for an RV. Admission to the Fort is free.
