SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – After a year without fireworks, shows are back on for this Fourth of July.
Thursday evening, Tybee City Council approved a $19,999 contract with Falcon Fireworks for the event on Sunday, July 4.
Meanwhile, the city of Savannah will co-sponsor the Savannah Waterfront Association’s fireworks show, also set for that Sunday, at 9:15 p.m.
Officials say a boat parade will take place, Plant Riverside District will host live entertainment, and many restaurants will offer dinner and drink specials.
“There’s always a reason to come down to Savannah’s Waterfront, but we are especially excited about this show as it’s the first event we’ve hosted in over a year,” said Executive Director Julie Musselman. “Fireworks shows are always the highlight of July 4th, and we are thrilled to bring this free event to our community.”
On July 4, the city will offer $5 flat-rate parking in city garages. The Savannah Convention Center will also offer $5 self-parking.
Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina on Hilton Head Island has tentatively planned to hold fireworks on Tuesdays, starting in late June. A show for Independence Day is also on the schedule.
