The Fourth of July is nearly upon us. If you don't have plans to go see a fireworks show, maybe you'll want to check out the show that was named the best in the state.

It's that time of year again when fireworks stores are open and people are eager to set off some brilliant displays. When it comes to fireworks displays, we have no shortage of them in Kentucky. Families from all over the state will gather for these epic fireworks displays in the state to celebrate America and be mesmerized by the views. That being said, everyone has their go-to firework shows that they go see each year all throughout the state on the Fourth of July weekend, so it would be very subjective of me to say which one is the best. However, what I can share with you is what Reader's Digest claims is the best fireworks show in the state.


What is the Best Fireworks Show in Kentucky?

Reader's Digest recently listed the best fireworks show in each state. Since the Fourth of July is coming up in a few weeks, I figured now was a good time to share this with you. As you know, we will have a lot of fireworks shows going on the 4th of July week. According to Reader's Digest, if you are going to see any of them, there is one that you should see above the rest in Kentucky.
