It's time to book a trip to the lakeside of Charlotte and celebrate Independence Day! Here are some exciting July 4th celebrations and events going on around Lake Norman and the surrounding area. There are a couple private clubs on the lake where the public is encouraged to view their annual firework celebrations from the water which include the Peninsula Club and Trump National Golf Course. Be cautious on the lake at night, check you lights to be sure they are in working condition, and drive slow as this is one of the busiest nights on the water. Typically, you can see fireworks from every direction along with the numerous lights from the boats across the water - certainly a spectacle to see.
Fireworks, amusements, food, parade, and entertainment! Join us at beautiful Harrisburg Park for two days of fun including amusements, food, entertainment and two nights of fireworks. New for this year, rides for your amusement! Purchase either a wristband for one or two days or tickets for each ride. Music provided by: Chunky Daddy, Band of Oz, American Bombshells and Bruce in the USA - Bruce Springsteen Tribute Band. The firework show will begin at 9:30 pm each night.
