The Green Valley Fire Department tells KGUN9 there will not be a show in Green Valley, and there hasn't been one there in the last 12 years.

The firework show planned at the Westin La Paloma was canceled because of a high fire danger. The decision came from the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

All of the firework shows listed above could be canceled because of possible thunderstorms this week. Officials have told KGUN9 that they will alert us if the shows are canceled, but it might not be until the day of the show.

Stay with KGUN9 for updates on these shows on July 4.
