Fireworks In San Antonio: July 4

There is one thing that I have learned from San Antonio living and that is this city is crazy for fireworks. There are plenty of firework shows put on by different organizations and cities (shown on graphic below), but you can see an amazing show from your own neighborhood. If you want to skip the crowds, grab your lawn chairs, snacks, drinks, and sit on your driveway. Your neighbors will give you a fabulous show.
