Read this list of places to catch fireworks and other July 4 fun nearby.

The World Police & Fire Games are still taking place through Sunday. Read Reston Now’s previous story about what to catch here in Reston. Champions Square at Reston Town Center is still open to the public for a little carnival-like fun.

The Games took a somber note Thursday when a Brazilian cyclist died from injuries suffered in a crash on the race course in Prince William County.

You can take part in an athletic feat of your own at Saturday’s Firecracker 5K race.

Not sure what is open and closed because both Friday and Saturday are holidays? Here is a list of major local services affected.

Have a safe and fun weekend!
