If you've ever been down to the Empire State Plaza in Albany on the 4th of July to watch the fireworks, you know it's quite an experience.  Either you make it an annual tradition to brave the tens of thousands of people or you want absolutely nothing to do with it. There's very little in between.  The same goes for any firework display in the area whether you live in Glens Falls, Schenectady, Lake George Clifton Park, Saratoga, or Troy.  What city does the best firework show in the Capital Region, and where's your favorite spot to watch them?

WGNA'S very own Jess comprised a comprehensive list of all of the area firework extravaganza's throughout the Capital Region for this year's 4th of July celebration.  And if this extensive list alone doesn't give you at least a little bit anxiety, certainly the thought of braving the heat and the throngs of people will!  Have a happy and save 4th of July, thank you to all of our servicemen and women who protect our freedoms, and enjoy the show - wherever and however you may be watching!
