For decades, 4th of July celebrations in the greater Birmingham area have culminated with friends and family gathering to watch fireworks, hear great music and celebrate the nation’s independence. In fact, Birmingham’s annual fireworks display is the biggest in the state of Alabama. Free to the public, the show features a variety of firework shells that will illuminate the sky with beautiful colors and patterns.
This Fourth of July will have a different meaning as we gather on the rooftops, back yards, and in parks to watch our beacon, Vulcan as he unfolds this year’s show atop Red Mountain.
