2014 Atlanta Area Fourth of July Fireworks

Where to see fireworks for July 4th in Metro Atlanta

By

What is the Fourth of July without a great fireworks show? You've just got to see the sky lit up with color and join in as the crowd "oohs" and "ahhs." There are spectacular fireworks shows all around the Atlanta area. Find out where you can see fireworks this July 4th in Atlanta.

For many of these crowded events, Marta is the way to go! Parking lots can be expensive and there's always a gridlock after the fireworks end. I will list the Marta stops for each event when available.

Lenox Mall

Lenox Mall is one of the most popular spots to watch fireworks in Atlanta each summer. With a convenient location, plenty of free parking, live music, and family games - there's a lot to love about this event. Not to mention the fact that they've got one of the largest fireworks displays in the Southeast! Live music from local bands begins at 6 p.m.
Fireworks start at approximately 9:40
Marta Stop: Lenox (North-South Doraville line) or Buckhead (North-South North Springs line). Lenox is closer, but if you are coming from North Springs and don't want to switch trains, Buckhead is just a short walk.

Centennial Olympic Park

Start the evening with a family-friendly parade at 6 p.m. and music begins at 7 p.m. in the bandstand. Don't forget, Decatur is super walkable and home to some great restaurants and shops, so spend the day in the area!

Fireworks on the Marietta Square

City of Marietta
There's something that feels a bit nostalgic about gathering with friends and family in the historic Marietta Square for a fireworks show. There's a parade in the morning, carnival games, and live music throughout the afternoon in Glover Park (the heart of the Marietta Square). Then, lay down a blanket and stake out a spot for the fireworks show!
Fireworks begin at dark.

Alpharetta Fireworks Show

The City of Alpharetta will put on their traditional Fourth of July fireworks show in Wills Park. The park will have free kid's activities like a bounce house, face painting and games. Food vendors (including some food trucks!) will be on-site. Live music and activities begin at 5:30 p.m.
Fireworks begin at dusk

July 3rd Celebration in Norcross

Here's a twist for you - fireworks on July 3rd! Norcross holds an annual pre-Fourth celebration (can you say fireworks two nights in a row?!). Live music and fireworks with picnics encouraged? Sounds a lot like the typical Fourth of July fireworks celebration! The festival begins at 3 p.m. and will include live music from local artists and cover bands.
Fireworks begin around 9:30

Roswell Fireworks Celebration

City of Roswell is putting on a fireworks extravaganza at Roswell High School. The big fireworks show takes place at dark. Food from food trucks will be available. Please note that Roswell High School is a drug, alcohol and tobacco free zone. There will be no live music or carnival games this year.
