    Will there be any days with fireworks around week of 4th of July?

      Gettysburg Firemen’s Carnival is held June 25-June 29th. The fireworks are held Friday, June 28 with rain date of Saturday, June 29.
      I believe Hanover which is about 20 minutes away have fireworks during that time. I hope this helps.
