When you own your home, things are going to break and, unless you want to spend your money on visits from a neighborhood handyman, you’re going to need to fix them yourself.
Where To Watch Fireworks In Richmond
With the 4th of July right around the corner, where is the best place to catch some fireworks in Richmond? Here are just a few with some details. Whichever you pick, have fun, be safe, and Go USA!
Innsbrook - TOVA in RVA! Taste of Virginia right near Short Pump and Glen Allen. This is the place to be. Local food, wine, beer, and bands. $10 tickets and $5 parking. This year’s event supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. *This is the only one of the events listed that is NOT on Tuesday, July 4 - it will be held on Saturday, July 1, 2017* Go early last year was very crowded and beer lines were long, but still a great time.
Chesterfield - held at the infamous Chesterfield County Fairgrounds (across from LC Bird HS) is this free, yes FREE, 4th of July event. Music, food, kid activities, and of course fireworks!
Goochland - a little drive, but worth it. Park at the school complex and position yourself toward the sports complex to take in the view under the star-filled sky of Goochland County.
Dogwood Dell - tradition to the core. Come and cee the City Dance Theatre and listen to the Richmond Concert Band while enjoying your picnic dinner before the fireworks show begins. Get there early to ensure a seat within the ampitheatre!
Crump Park - the coolest non-fireworks there ever was. “Red, White, and Lights”. Not only will the Richmond Symphony be performing, but the laser show after dusk is simply awesome. Come early to grab some food and bring your blankets/chairs.
The Diamond - they often have fireworks, but on the 4th, they’ll have their largest and longest show of the year. No set time for them to go off, whenever the game is over, but what a way to celebrate our freedom than with America’s game before the show!
Fort Lee - “Fourth at the Fort” - family, friends, and fun. This family friendly event has lots to offer, including music by renowned country singers like Maddie & Tae and Jackie Lee
Lewis Ginter - no fireworks, but free admission all day sounds nice! There will be music and a parade as well as free access to the Butterfly and Wild Art exhibits.
