We’re only a couple weeks away from another fun and exciting Fourth of July weekend. City and town centers across the region coordinate festivities and fireworks displays, including the huge Ingles Independence Day Celebration in downtown Asheville. But how do you choose from among the many choices, and what should you do if you want to see the fireworks without the crowds? Fortunately, our Beverly-Hanks agents are here to help.
We asked them: Where are the best fireworks spots in WNC?
“The sweet town of Weaverville hosts entertainment and fireworks at Lake Louise. It’s a wonderful place for people of all ages to celebrate. It is topped off with an amazing fireworks display over Lake Louise. I love it!”
“You really want a spot with a clear view of the fireworks…I’m just teasing, although Lake Julian has a huge fireworks show, and the Ingles parking lot (the one on Long Shoals Road) has pretty good views if you do not want to fight the traffic.”
“The town of Maggie Valley has done an exceptional job planning events throughout the year and the fireworks are no exception. They shoot them off from the beautiful Maggie Valley Fairgrounds. My family and I park across the street at Market Square where we enjoy a nice ice cream from the front porch at Jelly Bellys and take in the lovely fireworks show.”
