Hatteras Island Celebrates Independence Day with a Bang


A 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.

The 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 dazzling display.

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. 

The 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.
