These Fireworks Displays In North Carolina Will Drop Your Jaw

Fourth of July is right around the corner, and that means one thing: fireworks! Whatever your location in the state, there’s bound to be an amazing show not too far away. But some shows in North Carolina are TRULY spectacular. I think it’s safe to say that the 2016 displays will blow last year’s out of the water. With amazing fireworks, activities, and memories that will last forever, these are the best firework displays in North Carolina.

While these are the MAJOR fireworks show for each Carolina region…there are plenty more to enjoy.

Fort Bragg offers a parachute free-fall, live music, a flag ceremony and children’s activities during their celebration.

If you like your fireworks with a side of culture, the Charlotte Symphony will be doing a Symphony in the Park (June 25th) with a fireworks show to follow.

For fireworks and baseball minus the drive to Charlotte, check out the Winston-Salem Dash, Durham Bulls, or Asheville Tourists.

Many people will be taking a beach vacation over the 4th…don’t fret, wherever your location there is an awesome display – like the 24th annual Independence Day Celebration at Historic Corolla Park,the Camp Lejune 4th of July Celebration featuring Kellie Pickler, USS or Fireworks by the Sea at Carolina Beach.

And if cool mountain air is your Independence Day destination of choice, there’s the 4th of July Celebration at Fontana Village, 30th annual Christmas in July Festival in West Jefferson, and the Symphony by the Lake at Chetola.

WOW. That’s a lot of fireworks, and I’m certainly excited to celebrate now! What is your favorite fireworks display in North Carolina?
