with my daughter at the same age we sat farther away from the fireworks making them less noisy. my doctor suggested using a knitted hat over my daughters ears as using inner ear plugs could damage her ears. another option was head phones like for listening to music that would mufffle the noise by covering the ear

when my child and I go to see fire works we use ear plugs, he is autistic and has problems with loud noises thunder,fireworks and loud vehicals,ect make him un easy and he hide and throw tantrums to avoid it we buy those ear plugs that you roll between your fingers and set in the ear the wax ones fall out but these ons stay in and help him dramitically....hope you have a wonderful time watching fireworks and hope this helps... it works for us and i hope you give it a try.. :)
