Last week, North Beach AC hosts a fireworks show to welcome in summer. But this Sunday, we celebrate our nation’s official birthday with a few Atlantic County July 4th fireworks shows. And everyone is invited to celebrate!
Atlantic County July 4th Fireworks Shows
Atlantic City is never one to shy away from a good show. They offer not one, but two separate fireworks shows on Sunday, July 4th. First, come to the Marina District to watch the first show at 9:30 pm. Guests gather in the Borgata’s north parking lot for viewing. Parking costs $5 to self-park and $10 to valet. But, valet fills up pretty quickly. Self-park only allows first-come/first-served. So, come early to find a space.
Once the final spark flies, hurry over to the Boardwalk or the beach to watch another free fireworks show at 10 pm. These pyrotechnics shoot off from the Tropicana and Steel Pier. However, no fee necessary to watch this show! But it might prove difficult to find a place to view it from if you come late. So, you might want to forgo the Marina District’s show to scout out a spot for Tropicana’s show (or vice versa). Whichever route you choose, you win.
If you do not wish to fight major crowds at the AC Boardwalk, stick closer to home with the Margate Mothers’ 4th of July fireworks show. Brings your beach blankets and chairs (as well as your loved ones) with you to the Huntington Ave beach. Make sure to start a little early so you can find a good viewing spot. Fireworks start blasting off around 9 pm. The weatherman predicts scattered showers on the 3rd but mostly sunny skies on the 4th. However, in case it ends up raining on Sunday evening, the Margate Mothers scheduled a raincheck fireworks date for Monday, July 5th.
Whether you watch one of the Atlantic County July 4th fireworks shows or put on a personal display yourself, be careful. Follow local safety guidelines. And have fun!
