What's a Fourth of July celebration without fireworks?  If you're looking to put on your own fireworks display this weekend, you don't have to go far to get them.

"We're doing all Connecticut legal fireworks," said Kevin DeAngelo, who is selling fireworks on Summer St. "Nothing goes up more than 15 feet that we sell.  So it's all low to the ground kind of stuff.  So we keep it all safe that way it's easy for families to have fun."

DeAngelo says the tent will be open until Sunday.

In addition to the TNT vendor on Summer St. next to Dairy Queen is a different outdoor shop visible on High Ridge Rd.

"All the fireworks here are legal and this is my nephew's stand and he's got a great selection," said Pam Woodside, who is selling fireworks on High Ridge Rd.  "Some of them are fountain, some of them are just color.  There are a variety of sparklers."

But Independence day is about more than fireworks.

"The patriotism.  The whole idea of celebrating our country's birth and the cookouts -- the family atmosphere," said Woodside.

"We have few American holidays that we can really celebrate and having fireworks there is a bonus for the kids," said DeAngelo.  "The kids love it -- it makes them smile, makes them happy -- and makes me happy as they come into the store."

These are just some of the places you can find fireworks in the city and there's also Stamford's own fireworks show. 

It was scheduled for July 3 but because of predicted inclement weather, the city says it's rescheduled for Saturday July 5.  

Details of the event have not changed.  It will take place at Cummings Park with entertainment starting at 6 p.m.  Visit http://www.stamfordct.gov/ for more information.
