Make sure you've got a plan for fireworks this year! Also, don't forget about your pets--maybe leave a fan on or the air conditioner turned up, as many don't enjoy the loud bangs as much as we do.

We've picked our favorites here, and there's an even more definitive list over at StepOutBuffalo.com.

Let us know if we've missed any and we can add them!
