UPDATE: Avon fireworks reschedule
 -- maybe to Monday, July 7

Because of the approaching tropical storm Arthur, the Avon Fireworks Committee, Avon Property Owners’ Association, Koru Village, Pyrotecnico, and Dare County have made a joint decision to reschedule the July 4 fireworks show on the Avon Fishing Pier, tentatively to Monday, July 7 at 9 p.m.

This storm is expected to pass close to Cape Hatteras on Friday, July 4 with winds and rain that would prohibit the fireworks show from taking place.

Because of the weekend turnover in rental houses with visitors coming to the island, a decision was made to postpone the fireworks show until Monday to ensure that all residents and guests have ample time to prepare a proper celebration of Independence Day, complete with fireworks display, as planned.

The Avon Fireworks Committee will reconvene on Friday, July 4 to confirm these plans after the storm has passed.  Should adjustments be made to the tentative plans, there will be another news release on Friday afternoon.

The Fireworks Committee and Avon Property Owners’ Association would like to thank the National Park Service, Koru Village, Dare County, Pyrotecnico, and all of the event sponsors for their flexibility, cooperation and support.
