No matter where you are in the Charleston area, chances are there’s a Fourth of July fireworks display near you. The City of North Charleston, Patriots Point, and Sullivan’s Island will all set off sparkly exhibits. Get the weekend started early on Sat. July 2 on Sullivan’s Island where fireworks will be set off from J. Marshall Stith Park at dusk. On the actual Day of Independence, you’ll be able to see fireworks from the Mount Pleasant Pier at the Uncle Sam Jam, held from 7-11 p.m. The North Charleston Riverfront Park Fourth of July Festival, 3-9:45 p.m., will include music, kids activities, food trucks, craft vendors, and from what we hear, the largest fireworks show in the Lowcountry. The Patriots Point Fireworks Blast is a relaxing option for those looking to enjoy music and activities during the day and then watch the fireworks on the grass at dark. Activities start at 4 p.m., music starts at 5 p.m., and food and drinks will be available for purchase. Watch fireworks from the grassy area next to the marsh at no charge (although parking is $10 a vehicle). For all of these events, be sure to bring chairs or blankets to camp out for the display, and check out each event’s site for policies on pets, coolers, and ticket prices.
