Wondering where to watch fireworks this weekend? Here's a handful of suggestions in today's High Five report.

-The circus is in town. Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey presents "Legends." Performers from around the world will showcase daring feats to summon mythical and mysterious creatures of the past, including a unicorn, pegasus, and a woolly mammoth.
The show is in town through Sunday at the Fresno Convention Center. Show times vary.

-The night will be lit up like the Fourth of July in many valley cities and towns, one of those towns is Reedley. A World War II veteran, George Grawan, started the display there in 1951 and at age 96 still leads the charge. It's being held Friday at the ReedlEy Sports Park. Gates open at 6pm. There's a pre-show at 8:30pm. The main show gets underway at 9pm.

-Shaver Lake is holding its spectacular display on Saturday. Beat the heat this weekend by enjoying the cool mountain temperatures, then enjoy a spectacular fireworks display. Plan to arrive early to claim turf on the shores of the lake. Beginning at dusk, local boat owners will begin their trek from the Sierra Marina for a boat parade. The fireworks show will follow.

-Another option, cool off at Wild Water Adventures then stay for a spectacular fireworks show. The rides stay open until 8:30, then the colorful display will take over the park. The show will have music and a laser light show. The Star Spangled Revue happens Friday and Saturday.

-A fireworks display will also light up Chukchansi Park on Friday and Saturday nights. First, watch the Grizzlies take on the Tacoma Rainiers at 7:05, then stay for the show. Fans who buy a ticket to the Fourth of July game will receive a free ticket to any remaining 2014 regular season game. Saturday is Military Appreciation Night. The team will wear camo uniforms. Fans will also receive a pair of aviator sunglasses upon entry.
