I'm most interested in Raleigh so we won't have so far to drive home late and night, but I'm sure others would like to hear about them whereever they are. Thanks!

I read in either The Independent or News and Observer that the Regency Amphitheater in Cary is hosting the NC Symphony and is having fireworks afterwards. I'm not sure of the times, but you could probably check on the Web.

The state fairgrounds hosts the "main" fireworks in raleigh, and each town tends to have their own festivities as well. You should check into the individual town websites and they will have information about their fireworks. I know wake forest has them at the high school.

Are the ones in Wake Forest big and splashy? I have a friend coming in from out of town, and her only request was fireworks.

the ones at the fairgrounds tend to be the biggest. The ones in wake forest are smaller, but have a whole event before hand with music, etc.

Fireworks in WF will be Thursday evening, but seems the cost for the entire festivities is $5/person. Not sure if you'll have to pay if you go later just for the fireworks or not. I think we'll go elsewhere just in case. For our family of five, that's a little steep just to watch fireworks.



JULY
Wake Forest Fireworks Spectacular
Thursday, July 3; 6:00 p.m.
Trentini Stadium,
Wake Forest-Rolesville High School
Fireworks, games, live entertainment, and a whole lot more await you at this year’s 4th of July Celebration! Now in its 36th year, this community extravaganza is Wake Forest’s most eagerly-anticipated summer-time event serving up two days worth of fun-filled activities for the entire family. The 4th of July Celebration gets underway Thursday, July 3 at Wake Forest-Rolesville High School’s Trentini Stadium. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per person. Children ages six and under are admitted free. Advance tickets will be available at several locations throughout Wake Forest, including the Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce, NC Speciality Shops, and The Wake Weekly. As a special offer, buy four tickets in advance and get your fifth ticket free! The Band of Oz, one of the southeast’s most popular beach music bands and a 1997 Beach Music Hall of Fame inductee, will again headline this year’s celebration. Other acts will include Don Carrington’s Parachute Team, the Friendship Chapel Choir and the Bull City Garage Band. But what would a 4th of July Celebration be without fireworks? Not to worry! The 20-minute fireworks spectacular is sure to provide a memorable end to the evening’s festivities. For more information, contact Rhonda Alderman at (919) 812-9121.

The lineup begins at 10 a.m. at the intersection of North Main Street and West Juniper Avenue, near the Wake Forest College Birthplace. The parade is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. Participation in the Children’s Parade is free but bicyclists are encouraged to wear their helmets!
