Independence Day Fireworks by the Sea & Boardwalk Blast

A classic Carolina Beach tradition, our fireworks put all others to shame. Grab the kids and head down to the Carolina Beach Boardwalk to enjoy live music by the Johhny Folsom 4 starting at 6:30 pm. Stick around to watch our spectacular, seaside fireworks display starting at 9 pm. The event is free and family-friendly. Just remember to check the forecast beforehand, as the schedule is subject to change in the case of inclement weather.

If fireworks aren’t your style, you can visit historic Fort Fisher for a live concert by Sayer McShane. The event is open to the public and completely free. All you have to do is bring a blanket or some chairs and relax on the lawn. Food and beverage vendors will also be available on-site throughout the evening. The concert runs from 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm and is hosted on the stage at the Fort Fisher Recreation Area.
