The sound and feeling of a fireworks show on Independence day can't help but give you goose bumps and a feeling of national pride.

Jam in the Valley has one of the most impressive fireworks displays you'll ever see. The show starts with a Revolutionary era color guard shooting off a cannon. As the fireworks begin to explode overhead a large replica of the Statue of Liberty begins to rise along side an enormous American flag. Truly one of the most patriotic scenes you'll ever see.  Note: You'll need tickets to see the lineup of Country artists throughout the weekend, including Sam Hunt, Jake Owen and Easton Corbin as well as to see the display.
