A Soul-Stirring Roundup of Fireworks from the Fourth of July

With apologies to your dog

If you celebrated Independence Day in the Los Angeles area, chances are you saw a few fireworks—or more than a few. Official fireworks shows took place over the city, and illegal pyrotechnics lit up the sky everywhere in between. With so many colorful explosions happening simultaneously, it’s impossible to see them all live, but Instagram and YouTube make it easy to catch up on your own time, at the volume level of your choice.
