Fireworks shows in Mt. Pleasant, North Charleston still on

Posted: Updated:

Every Fourth of July, Mt. Pleasant's Patriots Point and North Charleston's Riverfront Park have some of the largest firework displays and festivities in the area. 

 July Fourth Events in the Lowcountry

Patriots Point spent about $25,000 on fireworks in 2013 for over 1,400 shells. The show is expected to last 16 minutes.

"We believe people would rather have an intense firework show where every shoot is going to be packed solid with lots of fireworks," says executive director of Patriots Point, Mac Burdette.

Riverfront Park spent about $35,000 for over 1,700 shells for a 22 to 24 minute show.

"It's a huge barge of wall to wall explosives," says the event coordinator at Riverfront Park, Lisa Reynolds.

Each location will be shooting fireworks from a barge on the water. Despite weather conditions these Fourth of July festivities will take place. 

Patriots Point is located at 40 Patriots Point Rd, Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464, and event parking is $10.  Riverfront Park is located at 1001 Everglades Dr. North Charleston, SC 29406, and event parking is free.
