Eastern Shore - 4th of July Fireworks Shows

With the 4th of July right around the corner, several towns and groups will be putting on fireworks displays. Recreational Coordinator of Cape Charles Jennifer Lewis says their fireworks will be similar to last year.

The event will be an all-day event on Sunday, July 4 with vendors. Cape Charles will also have a 4th of July parade.

The show will be best viewed from the beachfront in Cape Charles. The Town of Cape Charles spent about $4,500 on their fireworks display.

The Moose in Exmore will have their 4th of July activities on Saturday July 3rd. Angie Ewell of the Moose says there will be childrens games starting at 3:00 PM, food will be sold. The Moose pool will be open to the public as well, normally the pool is only available to members of the Moose. At 6:00 PM, live music will be played and the fireworks will begin shortly after 9:00 PM.
The town of Chincoteague will be having a fireworks display again. Brian Rush, who is coordinating the event says the fireworks will be on Saturday, July 3rd and are scheduled to start at 10:00 PM and will be shot next to the carnival ground as usual. The rain date will be Monday, July 5th at the same time.

Rush says the Town is hoping to alleviate the traffic gridlock they normally experience on the July 4th firework night by providing free shuttle service to all who want to attend the carnival. The Pony Express will be free of charge on the 3rd and people coming to the island are asked to park at the Chincoteague High School where buses will take them to the carnival grounds.

Chincoteague's fireworks show this year will be run entirely by computer.

Many people boating on the bayside will be able to view the town of Crisfield's fireworks. Val Howard says Crisfield will be having a "Freedom Fest" on Sunday, July 4th shortly before their fireworks are set to go off from 6:00 PM 9:00 PM. There will be vendors, games and food available for those who attend. Howard also says there will be a large jumbo screen on site where they will be showing pictures of veterans and servicemen. To have a picture shown, simply bring it to the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce.

Howard the firework show will begin shortly after dusk and will be shot from the Summer's Cove Marina. The town of Crisfield's fireworks display has a price tag of $5,500.
