Happy 4th!


5 Local Spots to Celebrate the 4th:

  1. Williamsburg: Head to Colonial Williamsburg this July 4th for Food, Fanfare and Fireworks. Between the Virginia Symphony, fife and drums, buffet dinner and more, you're sure to have a one of a kind experience here.

  2. Newport News: Check out Newport News' Stars in the Sky event at Victory Landing Park, and get into obstacle courses, live music, incredible food vendors, and fireworks, "lighting up the sky" above the gorgeous James River.

  3. Newport News: Celebrate independence indoors and beat the heat or possible rain. Head over to the Abbitt Planetarium for their Spirit of America celebration and get into their patriotic laser show set to the tune of some of your favorite American musicians. 

  4. Norfolk: The long running 33rd Annual Fourth of July Great American Picnic & Fireworks, held at Downtown Norfolk's Town Point Park features incredible food grilled in every way you can imagine, as well as music performed by the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command Band. Fireworks go off over the Elizabeth River at 9:30 PM while you relax on the spacious lawn.

  5. Virginia Beach: July 4th at Mount Trashmore.  Celebrate America’s independence with live music by local musicians, delicious foods, and of course, booming fireworks! *$5 parking fee; When parking lots at Mount Trashmore Park are full, Edwin Drive between Independence Boulevard and South Boulevard may close.
