End your Fourth of July with a bang as spectacular fireworks light up the sky at dusk. Fireworks are launched at the Everest Academy – one of the highest points in the township allowing the whole community to see the display.

Parking for the festival is $5 per car till 2 p.m. and after 2 p.m. the cost is $15 per car. Shuttles are available for your convenience.
