Wilmington does a good job at the fireworks. The crowds unnerve me though and I don't do much of this anymore since the kids are gone. Have fun though.

Faith, in the Salisbury area (north of Charlotte. exit 74/75/76 on I-85), is supposedly known for having an apocalyptic fire works show

We have a fireworks show over here in Tega Cay, SC...there will also be fireworks off Lake Wylie (by Buster Boyd bridge)....Knights Stadium will have a fireworks display by WBT (Fort Mill, SC)...and in Waxhaw, NC they too have a fireworks show too. Each year there has always been a show in Charlotte (uptown)...but WBT has moved it over to Knights Stadium this year...it looked as if Charlotte would be dark this year..but last I heard the Mayor announced they would have their own show in uptown?

Clear Channel and Scott Clark Toyota will be sponsoring the Uptown show now.

I'd rather do them at my own house... that is how we always did it when I was little. 4th of July is my absolute favorite holiday. So many wonderful memories...

I don't know but I saw it in the local paper when I was there, plus the lady I met on the plane told me they have it there every year.
