Kill Devil Hills Independence Day Fireworks Set To Ignite July 7th

Posted By on May 31, 2017

The Town of Kill Devil Hills will once again host its annual Independence Day fireworks display off of Avalon Pier this summer, but the event will take place just a few days after the actual 4th of July, happening instead on Friday, July 7.

The reason for the date change is that the town has a new fireworks contractor this year, as Pyrotechnico, an award-winning fireworks company from New Castle, PA, takes over the task of lighting up the sky at the patriotic celebration.

This year, the fireworks event will be conducted not on July 4 but on July 7 off of Avalon Pier, with a rain date of Saturday, July 8. 

According to a press release from the town: Throughout the search process we were told time and again that North Carolina-certified fireworks technicians are becoming scarce and that became a reality when we could not find a vendor for the traditional July 4th celebration. The date change, though, just gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy fireworks displays at other Dare County locations on the Fourth and then come to Kill Devil Hills beaches the evening of July 7, at dark. 

Representing Pyrotechnico, Justin Pruett has visited the Avalon Pier and found the location to be satisfactory for this year’s event.  On behalf of Pyrotechnico, he has voiced excitement over his company’s new relationship with Kill Devil Hills and the pier location.  Avalon Pier associates are equally enthusiastic about hosting this year’s fireworks celebration. 

So, pack a snack, bring a chair, unroll a blanket, get some sand between your toes, and have a dazzling good time at Kill Devil Hills’ Independence Week fireworks celebration on Friday, July 7th, with a rain date on July 8th, at dark on the beach.

The Town of Nags Head has scheduled its annual Independence Day fireworks spectacular off of Nags Head Fishing Pier to take place on Tuesday, July 4, starting at 9:20pm.

The Town of Manteo will also host its annual Independence Day celebration along the downtown waterfront starting at 3pm on Tuesday, July 4, with its own fireworks display set for that night, starting after dark.

And finally, the 25th Annual Festival of Fireworks returns to Historic Corolla Park in Currituck County, featuring a full day of free events starting at 12pm with food vendors, children’s games, a watermelon eating contest, a cornhole competition, and live music in the evening starting at 5pm and followed by the fireworks display beginning at dusk.
