The 2013 July 4th holiday is coming up faster than you think. This is especially true if you are in an East Bay city that did not have enough funds to have a fireworks show during the recent economic downtown. Some cities cancelled their shows altogether. This was not welcome news to the affected residents, of course.

In 2013, this is no different. There is still not enough money in some city budgets to have an official fireworks show. Here are some updates on the progress of East Bay cities toward ensuring a great 2013 Fourth of July fireworks event.
