Winston Salem
OLD SALEM MUSEUM AND GARDENS,

Details: It was here, in 1783, that the Moravians responded to Gov. Alexander Martin's order to celebrate the country's independence on July 4. Martin was the first governor to do so, and the peace-loving Moravians were first to respond, with a musical program called "Psalm of Joy."
Beware of references that call the event "America's first celebration of July 4th." It's not that simple, as Philadelphians and Bostonians will tell you. The modern observance includes the reading of the Declaration of Independence, Salem Militia forms on Salem Square and fire drills with a bucket brigade.

Tanglewood

Tanglewood presents its Annual Fireworks Display on Wednesday, July 4th at 9:30 p.m. The fireworks display will take place at Tanglewood's steeplechase track, located adjacent to the Amphitheater. Concessions are available on site, however, picnics are welcome. We invite you to come to the park early in the day and enjoy your picnic in the park, swimming, horseback riding, paddleboats or the many other recreational activities available during the summer months!

You heard right about Lewisville, they blow Tanglewood away.

Lewisville puts off the best and longest show around in this part of the state.
Get to town square early, everybody goes there, traffic and parking are crazy...

I heard that the Uncle Sam Jam's fireworks & Lewisville's were the same fireworks just different places to watch. True?

Has anyone been to the Uncle Sam Jam? It sounds like something young people may like & I have a group young people to entertain. Is their firework show any good?

Thanks for all your help!

I don't see any reason why not. althought, get there early as the parking fills up fast.

we luckily live less than two miles from the show, so we're walking (with a 1 yo)
