Annual 4th of July Fireworks

Saturday, July 4 from 10:00 pm to 10:20 pm

This 4th of July, the emphasis is on fun and fireworks.

Grab all your friends and family, your favorite blanket or camping chair, and join us for a Cherokee 4th of July fireworks spectacular! This year, the fireworks are the main attraction, so all you need to do is sit back, recline under the stars, and enjoy the big, booming show. The fun and festivities will kick off at 10 p.m. on 4th of July eve at the old Cherokee High School.

Socially distanced fun for the whole family.

To ensure everyone has a safe, fun time, Cherokee will be following all the current CDC guidelines regarding social distancing, the wearing of masks, and other safety precautions. So as you’re claiming your spot and laying out your blanket or chairs, please be careful to maintain a safe space with all the families and friends around you. For those extra concerned with safety, you can watch the fireworks display conveniently from the comfort of your vehicle. Help Cherokee celebrate the big occasion with some noise, some bright, beautiful colors, and a great time for all. Free to all friends and families.
