This conversation seems to go around every year. First for New Years then for July 4th. Maybe Google it to find out where and when. The Villages doesn't "do" fireworks...though maybe some neighborhood people set off a few. I think Leesburg might...Disney for sure does them every night.

I remember reading about some fireworks at Sumter Landing one year. Didn't they get arrested?

When I was a kid, I used to love to play with those little 1-1/2 inch firecrackers. Today, I guess they are totally extinct.

I can hear them and if I go outside I can see the Wildwood fireworks on the 4th, I'm near Sterling Hgts Rec Center on St. Charles. Those who live in Collier probably have a front row view. NYE I didn't hear and see any, so must be just on the 4th. From online newspaper Villages News here's last 4th of July schedule.
