What does freedom mean for our pets? Even for humans, freedom does not mean we can do whatever we want whenever we want. For the animals that share our lives, we can give them freedom to enjoy their lives in safety and comfort, as our best friends and loyal companions. And that's something worth celebrating!
More than 25 Fourth of July celebrations and fireworks shows are planned across Alabama.
The Alabama Tourism Department says the events include the Spirit of America at Point Mallard in Decatur, the Thunder on the Mountain fireworks show at Vulcan in Birmingham, and Independence Day 1776 at the American Village in Montevallo.
Fireworks shows will stretch from Gulf Shores on the coast to Athens in the Tennessee Valley and from Demopolis in west Alabama to Auburn in east Alabama.
