Avon and Hatteras Island's annual Independence Day celebration, "Fireworks at the Beach" on the 4th of July, is sponsored by the Avon Property Owners Association and funded in part by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau. The fireworks display, permitted by and in cooperation with the National Park Service, will begin about 9:15 p.m. from a launch site at the end of the Avon Pier. The show, presented by PYROTECNICO, lasts about 20 minutes.
This event is additionally made possible through donations from the Hatteras Island business community and its residents, property owners, and guests. Radio Hatteras will broadcast patriotic "Music for Fireworks" from 9 until 10 p.m. and "Red, White & Blue" music until Midnight at FM 101.5 and 99.9. Tune in at 9 p.m. to hear Bob Barris talk a little about the origin of Fireworks and offer a brief history lesson about the celebration of Independence Day. Then watch the sky light up to a very familiar Galactic tune, followed by a selection of patriotic music. To stream Radio Hatteras live on your computer, go to www.radiohatteras.org.
