What is there to do on the 4th in Louisville? How good is the fireworks display? Is it worth seeing? We are new to the area. Moved here from Seattle.

Welcome. The largest annual fireworks show in North America is held annually....not in New York, but in Louisville:

http://www.thunderoverlouisville.org...-the-show.html

Unfortunately for you, that firework show is in April. When did you move? The 4th of July firework show is pretty decent. I think it is about the same as you would find in most regional cities. Thunder over Louisville sees 750,000 plus people come to watch. 4th of July draws only around 100,000. Still, a very good show, and the AAA ballpark is great for families during the day before the show for a nice baseball game. Waterfront Park is nice if you have not been.

check these sites for things going on in the city:

LoL! I agree with Missy. 3Jmac~ What neighborhood do you live in? I used to live in Lyndon and Tom Sawyer Park would have a festival and fireworks. Sometimes the neighborhood parks will have events, but if you are close to downtown, that's probably the best.
