In celebration of our nation’s birthday, the Town of Chapel Hill will light up the skies with a community fireworks display in Southern Community Park on Thurs, July 4th. In advance of the fireworks, Southern Village will host a community celebration on the Village Green. This year signals a new era for this Chapel Hill tradition as it moves from UNC-Chapel Hill’s Kenan Stadium to a new home in the community. This year’s event offers two different experiences for local residents looking to enjoy the fireworks display. Southern Community Park’s sports fields will be open starting at 7pm for those who simply want to bring a blanket or chair and relax with family and friends in the park before the show. For those who are looking to feed the family and catch some live entertainment before the fireworks begin, then the Southern Village Green is the place to be. From 6 to 9 p.m., Market Street merchants will have food and drink for sale and live music on stage from Idlewild South. The fireworks are expected to begin around 9:15pm and this year’s show will be visible from the park, the Village Green, and many other locations around town. Town staff has created a 3D model of the fireworks and it shows that the fireworks will be visible from many locations in the community.
