With Fourth of July just a few short days away – and temperatures for the Western United States hovering in the low triple digits – this seems like the perfect time to stock up on ice cream, barbecue supplies, event information… and most importantly, an understanding of where you can and can’t set off fireworks in southern Utah.
With that stipulation given, here is a brief list of…
