Principal Park (aka Sec Taylor stadium) does have an incredible show, much better than their usual Friday night shows. ...Pop's? I agree kid's may lose interest very quickly... Some have mentioned Windsor Heights which are good too, as well as West Des Moines, mainly because of all the optimal viewing areas. But my favorite (biased by tradition) is heading out to Urbandale's Lion's Park. All day festivities! A carnival going on (even right now, I think) an incredible parade tomorrow morning... and a fireworks show like no other at night! From what I've seen over the years, nothing comes close to this show. Food... rides... parking... law enforcement... a little bit of everything for everyone! And for some silly reason, a lot of people walking around in ISU garb. haha...
Happy 4th wherever you go!
Definitely Urbandale's fireworks, hands down. Great show late at night, and like you said, carnival and parade going on too.
