perfect July beach day with blue skies and clear waters served as the
opening act for the fireworks show off the Avon Pier on Wednesday,
attracting spectators from all across Hatteras Island.
Avon Fireworks started at around 9:20 p.m., launching from the very end
of the Avon Pier. The show lasted roughly 20 minutes, and visitors
headed to the area beaches for a front-row seat for the display over
the ocean. The shoreline in front of the pier was crowded as usual,
although beach-goers all along the Avon shoreline were able to see the
Avon fireworks show was orchestrated by the company PYROTECNICO, was
sponsored by the Avon Property Owners Association, and was funded in
part by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau. This event was additionally
made possible through cooperation with the National Park Service, and
donations from the Hatteras Island business community and its
residents, property owners, and guests.
Ocracoke Fireworks were launched on Tuesday, July 3, from the southern
end of the island at the large NPS parking area. Hyde County sponsored
the show in conjunction with the Ocracoke Civic & Business
Association and the National Park Service.
