Fireworks and the Fourth of July. The two go together like peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin and macaroni and cheese!
Charlotte and surrounding cities give you several great options to watch the sky light up this Fourth of July and we’ve put together an awesome list of fireworks shows.
This event kicks off America’s birthday and Charlotte’s 250th anniversary! It takes place on Tuesday, July 3 at American Legion Memorial Stadium near Central Piedmont Community College’s campus.
The fireworks can be seen from the stadium, Independence Park and many locations around Uptown Charlotte including overpass bridges and parking decks located near American Legion Memorial Stadium. The fireworks will be synced to live music on 102.9 The Lake.
The Star-Spangled Spectacular starts at 6 p.m. with the fireworks show at 9:30 p.m.
Fireworks will light up the Queen City skies after the baseball game between the Charlotte Knights and the Durham Bulls.
You don’t have to attend the game to see SkyShow Charlotte. Bring out your blankets and watch the incredible fireworks from Romare Bearden Park, located right next to the stadium.
There will also be a free street festival from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. in front of BB&T stadium with live music, carnival rides and bounce houses.
The U.S. National Whitewater Center will celebrate all things red, white and blue during a two-day festival.
Starting Tuesday, July 3, there will be outdoor adventure activities, yoga, live music and of course a fantastic fireworks show both nights! Admission is free into the U.S. National Whitewater Center, but parking is $6.
Here’s a schedule of events for the 4th of July Celebration at the U.S. National Whitewater Center.
Baseball, America and fireworks… what could be better?!
Head out in your Team USA gear to watch the Kannapolis Intimidators take on the Hickory Crawdads. Stick around after the game for the Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular.
Tega Cay puts together a day full of fun activities to celebrate the Fourth of July and Tega Cay’s 36th anniversary.
The festival starts at 9 a.m. with a Land Parade. Then throughout the day there will be a paddle board joust, log rolling and a boat parade. The fun-filled day culminates at 9:30 p.m. with a spectacular fireworks show.
These fireworks can be viewed on land or on the water.
Spend a full day out on Lake Wylie waters and then drop anchor near the Buster Boyd Bridge to watch the spectacular fireworks show.
If you aren’t out on the waters, there are plenty of lawn chair and barstool options available at parking lots and restaurants nearby.
Remember to practice fireworks safety during the Fourth of July holiday. In North Carolina, it is illegal to have Roman candles, bottle rockets and any aerial fireworks without a proper permit.
From our team here at Charlotte Mechanical, we hope that everyone has an awesome Fourth of July with family and friends! Also, take time to honor those who fight for our freedom every day.
