Avon Pier will Once Again Host Annual
Hatteras Island 4th of July Fireworks

The Avon Pier will once again be the launch site of the annual Independence Day fireworks display, which is scheduled for July 4.

The fireworks display, permitted by and in cooperation with the National Park Service, will begin about 9:15 p.m. from a launch site at the end of the pier.  The ensuing show, orchestrated and presented by PYROTECNICO, lasts about 20 minutes.

The fireworks are visible all along the Avon beach and parking adjacent to the launch site is limited, so visitors are encouraged to walk, bike or carpool to their closest beach access.

Avon and Hatteras Island's annual Independence Day celebration, "Fireworks at the Beach," is sponsored by the Avon Property Owners Association and funded in part by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau. This event is additionally made possible through donations from the Hatteras Island business community and its residents, property owners, and guests.

Radio Hatteras will broadcast patriotic "Music for Fireworks" from 9 until 10 p.m. and "Red, White & Blue" music until Midnight at FM 101.5 in southern Hatteras Island and 99.9 in northern Hatteras Island.  Tune in at 9 p.m. to hear Bob Barris talk a little about the origin of fireworks and offer a brief history lesson about the celebration of Independence Day, then watch the sky light up to a very familiar Galactic tune, followed by a selection of patriotic music.
