4th of July fireworks captured by drones around the US

This past Saturday was the 4th of July (Happy 4th of July!) with fireworks going off all around the country long into the night. People with drones were able to capture fireworks going off from above, making for awesome videos.

Take a look at the following drones videos from around the country which have managed to capture thousands of fireworks going off in cities creating an incredible video to watch and enjoy.


In Chicago, the YouTube channel John of Drones uploaded a video where he flew an Autel EVO II 8K drone around his neighborhood at around 300 feet to show the thousands of fireworks going off across Chicago. It is amazing to see all the fireworks going off close by and the ones going off miles away in the distance.

Los Angeles

YouTube channels, SoCal Attractions 360 and WOW MEDIA took to the skies over Los Angeles showing the thousands of fireworks that seem to be going off above every block in the city. The videos are made even better with the sunset still leaving an orange tint on the horizon.

Orange County

Bruno De Witt Zanotto shared a shorter video of the fireworks going off in Orange County, California with most of the fireworks going off in the distance. The drone then pans down to a firework just below the drone and then continues shooting the fireworks in the distance.

Fireworks alternative, drones

Drone light shows have been a hit ever since Intel started performing them at big-time events to show off what they are capable of. While fireworks are still more commonly used compared to drones, their usage is slowly going up. Check out the rest of our coverage on drone light shows and the countries that are using them the most.
