The Riverbend offers a variety of fireworks displays on or around the Fourth of July and there is one place that allows you to view up to nine displays over a three day period, the Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford. Tickets allow visitors to view those displays from the top to levels of the tower from 8 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. on July 3rd, 4th and 5th.

Deanna Barnes, Projects Manager for the Village of Hartford, says it's a unique experience.
