After being canceled in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 4th of July Fireworks show in Avon is back on track for 2021, per a recent update from the Avon Property Owners Association (APOA.)
The fireworks display, permitted by and in cooperation with the National Park Service, will begin at 9:00 p.m. on July 4 from a launch site at the end of the Avon Pier. The ensuing show, orchestrated and presented by the contractor PYROTECNICO, typically 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, and to maintain social distancing guidelines.
Avon and Hatteras Island’s annual Independence Day celebration is sponsored by the Avon Property Owners Association. The event is additionally made possible through donations from the Hatteras Island business community and its residents, property owners, and guests, and per the APOA, the Fireworks Committee is asking for public donations, as the COVID-19 pandemic has made collecting funds more difficult.
