Lots to do this Fourth of July around Charlotte. Our two favorites: The U.S. National Whitewater Fourth of July Festival and the The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra Summer Pops.
At SouthPark’s Symphony Park, the Summer Pops will conclude their season with a Celebrate America concert on July 3. Take your blanket early and grab your spot ($10 for adults, under 18 are free).
The Coca-Cola 4th of July Festival features two consecutive days of free live music and fireworks on Tuesday, July 3 and Wednesday July 4. Music starts each afternoon at 4 p.m., the party will continue each night with a fireworks show. They’re launching the fireworks from Hawk Island and the show will display over the whitewater river.
