Fourth Means Fireworks


July 4th celebrations, even with their BBQs and patriotic red, white, and blue apparel, would not be complete without stunning fireworks displays.

Many of us have a favorite way to watch these colorful shows ? standing by the water, listening to live music, or sitting in a park. This 4th of July week provides an array of styles for fireworks viewing.

If you are a music fan, consider going to Tredyffrin Township Annual 4th of July celebration at Wilson Farm Park. The fireworks begin at dusk and live music will play from 7-9:15pm. On July 3, attend the fireworks show at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square. The breathtaking show is set to music and requires special tickets that should be purchased in advanced. In Wilmington, come engage in the festivities on the 4th at Tubman-Garrett Riverfont Park and along the Riverwalk, and watch a fireworks display. The Delaware Symphony Orchestra performs in the evening and family activities are being planned.

Many parks are offering guests an enhanced scenic setting in which to watch fireworks displays. Friendship Field, on the corner of Fillmore Street and Franklin Avenue, is hosting the free Phoenixville Annual fireworks. Another option is Downingtown Good Neighbor Day, hosting fireworks around 9:30pm after providing entertainment all day at Kerr Park, Pennsylvania Ave. It should be a free, jammed-pack day of family goodness.

Beachgoers might enjoy the fireworks in downtown Rehoboth Beach, presented by Rehoboth Beach Main Street, on July 4th. Keeping with tradition, local residents, visitors, and downtown business can gather on the shoreline and boardwalk to enjoy the fantastic fireworks display. If skies are clear, the fireworks will begin at 9:15, but if skies appear stormy, the show may begin as early as 8pm. To thank its donors, whose generosity entirely funds the show, a full list of the donors will be featured in the Cape Gazette after the event, and individuals who gave $1,000 or more will have their pictures in the paper with Rehoboth Beach Main Street’s infamous ?big check.?
