Philadelphia Plans Biggest Fireworks Show Yet For July 4, 2018
July 2, 2018 | Heather Griesser LaPierre
Philadelphia’s fireworks outshine the rest, and not just because they blast off in the place where Independence Day began. The city dedicates a full week to Fourth of July celebrations, via the Wawa Welcome America festival, consisting of museum days, alfresco concerts, outdoor movie nights, parties and two epic fireworks shows—including the biggest the event has ever seen. 

  • Freedom Festival – Across the mighty Delaware River from Philadelphia, Camden, New Jersey’s Wiggins Waterfront Park celebrates the Fourth with live music, food vendors, a salute to veterans and a beer garden. The event culminates in over-the-river pyrotechnics—also visible from the Philly side of the river. Wednesday, July 4. Entertainment at 5 p.m., fireworks at 9:30 p.m. Riverside Drive & Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard.

  • Wawa Welcome America July 4th Concert & Fireworks – The Fourth’s grand finale takes place on the 100-year-old Benjamin Franklin Parkway. An epic concert—Pitbull headlines; Heather Headley and the Philadelphia POPS perform too—precedes what organizers promise to be the biggest fireworks display in the festival’s 26-year history. Wednesday, July 4. Concert at 7 p.m., fireworks at 10 p.m. 26th Street & the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
