As darkness falls over Athens on July 4th the sky will burst with brilliant colors and glisten with sparkling streamers heralding our Nation's victory for independence. This annual fireworks display is nestled in the Athens Football Stadium (100 U.S. Highway 31N in Athens) with rockets aimed skyward for an amazing show visible from surrounding spaces like Swan Creek Park, Athens Greenway, Athens Park and Recreation Center, Central Church of Christ and other adjacent areas.
No seating is available in the stadium but friends and families are encouraged to bring blankets, camp chairs, or lower the tailgate on the pickup and find a spot nearby to take in the show. The show doesn't happen until after dark (8:00PM or later depending on cloud conditions) and is a rain or shine event!
New to the 2018 Red, White and Boom Fireworks Show will be the addition of synchronised music sponsored by Huntsville International Airport. Local 105.1FM (1110AM) WSLV Cat Country will hosting the music and you can enjoy it on TuneIn or Streema Apps (just search WSLV) or over the internet with your favorite browser at http://radio.securenetsystems.net/cirrusencore/wslv
