Parties, weddings? Or are these fireworks a new way of communicating rage and frustration? A small rebellion?

NYC sees mysterious uptick in illegal fireworks
First, it was the constant wail of ambulance sirens carrying victims to the hospital. Then, New Yorkers learned to live with the sounds of police helicopters hovering over street demonstrations.

Fireworks causing anxiety and fear for many around Metro Denver area
For the past two weeks, fireworks are being set off around Denver and surrounding areas. The displays are randomly scattered and occur at night, some after midnight and into early morning hours.
According to Colorado law with a few exceptions, “no person shall possess or discharge any fireworks, other than permissible fireworks, anywhere in Colorado.”
Permissible fireworks are not ones that sound like a bomb blast or gunshot. Fireworks that explode or leave the ground, including firecrackers, rockets, Roman candles, cherry bombs and other similar fireworks are prohibited.
And this is actually what they are… – KDVR
Fireworks set off Lehigh Valley residents, Pennsylvania
The “indiscriminate use” of fireworks has worsened this year, residents and officials believe.
Allentown Police Chief Glenn Granitz Jr. said the department has experienced an uptick in fireworks-related calls.
He attributes it, at least partially, to cabin fever and the limited options for entertainment amid a pandemic-hampered graduation season. – MCall

Columbus residents complain about late night eruptions of fireworks
We are still two weeks out from July 4. But the pops and percussion of fireworks are ringing through neighborhoods all over the city on a nightly basis.
A resident of Westgate reports:
“I can practically feel the percussion of the explosion happening. My first instinct was ‘oh my gosh, is somebody shooting at my house?’ It happens every night, and it’s been happening. And there are times when you’re playing a game with yourself- is that fireworks or gunshots? Which was it? It is very unsettling.” – 10TV
Late-night fireworks noise complaints across Charlottesville
It’s not even July 4th, but people around Charlottesville are already lodging fireworks complaints.
Even the smallest fireworks aren’t allowed in city limits, unless you have a specific permit.
“There’s no fireworks in the city of Charlottesville. That means no sparklers, no smoke bombs, no fountains, anything of that nature.” – NBC 29
Residents of Rochester complain of late night fireworks
Besides being a public nuisance and tying up emergency lines fireworks are dangerous too. People can hurt themselves, and those who start fires with fireworks could be charged with arson. Homes can be set ablaze by inadvertent fireworks.
And please be courteous to your neighbors. Find a field or a park. Something away from kids, from houses and cars. Something more safe. – Spectrum Local News
Fireworks going off every night in Guilford County, North Carolina
Many people in Greensboro and High Point have heard fireworks every night for the past two weeks, and police say they can easily be mistaken for gunshots.
“At first we did think it was guns going off because we were like ‘Wait, what’s that noise?’ But some of them you can clearly hear the firework go ‘boom’ and the crackle at the end.“
North Carolina has some of the toughest restrictions on fireworks in the country. The kind that flies in the air or explodes, are illegal for personal use. But that doesn’t seem to be stopping anyone from setting them off around Greensboro and High Point once the sun goes down.
No matter the reason behind it, it needs to stop because it’s scaring kids and animals. – WFMY News 2
