Are you looking for somewhere fun to watch the fireworks for the 4th of July? The area of Greenville has it all. This year the 4th of July is on a Wednesday, so for those who don’t want to stay up late and work the next day, there are many events during the weekend.

The first event is Saturday June 30th. Heritage Park in Simpsonville is having their Independence Day Celebration. There will be a free concert by Charlies Daniels Band plus fireworks! The event beings at 7 P.M. and goes until 10:30 P.M.

The same night there is the Freedom Blast in Greer City Park. There will be inflatables, food and a firework show. The events if from 6-10:30 P.M.

On Sunday July 1st, Newspring Church located at the TD Convention Center in Greenville will be having their Summer Cookout starting at 7 P.M. Their firework show will begin after dark.

For those of you who want to celebrate the 4th on the 4th, downtown Greenville will be having their Wells Fargo Red, White, & Blue Festival. The event will take place from 5-10:30 P.M. on Main Street from River/August to Markley. There will be four different bands, food, a kid zone and fireworks starting at 9:45.

Now if you're looking to buy some fireworks for some extra fun for the family, there are a few stores that have many different options for you. Big G Fireworks located off of Pleasantburg in Greenville has a wide variety of fireworks. They are open Friday - Sunday 1-5 P.M. Simpsonville even has a store called ViViD Fireworks Show in a Box, where you can literally buy a box of fireworks for your own private show. These shows last 6-8 minutes. These boxes aren't cheap, but if you're planning a trip to the lake or somewhere where there won't be fireworks, this is the perfect solution! Closer to the 4th, there will be smaller stands around the area selling fireworks. Last year, Walmart had stands set up in the parking lot where you could buy some fun ones for the kids.
