We are headed into fireworks season again, so I thought I’d put together a list of the local events for you to check out. Please know this list will be updated frequently, as we hear what events will be taking place. Some events may be announced close to the last minute as communities decide how to proceed with COVID regulations and such. Here is what I have found so far. Stay tuned Lafayette!
