Vulcan Park and Museum to Host the State’s Fourth of July Celebration, the Alabama Bicentennial Fireworks show

This year’s show will wow guests and captivate hearts

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The state’s largest 4th of July celebration will again ignite the sky atop red mountain with an array of fireworks in honor of both the state’s bicentennial and our nation’s birthday.

On July 4, the City of Birmingham welcomes the state to visit and watch live a breathtaking show in honor of those who have fought for our country’s independence. Those in the Birmingham viewing area can also tune into WBRC Fox 6 for live stream.

Spectators can listen to the soundtrack exclusively on iHeart media radio stations 102.5 The Bull, 103.1 The Vulcan, 103.7 The Q, 104.1 The Beat, Birmingham’s ALT 991, B106.5, 105 Hallelujah FM, Magic 96.5, News Radio 960 WERC, News Radio 105.5 WERC and also on La Jefa 98.3.

At approximately 9 p.m., the first of more than 2,500 shells and effects will brighten Vulcan and the sky above him. A unique score featuring artists such as James Brown, Jimmy Buffett and Pitbull will be expertly timed and choreographed to the colorful firework display, making it the biggest show Vulcan has put on to date.

Jay Lamar, Alabama Bicentennial Commission Executive Director, is elated by this partnership.

“The Alabama Bicentennial Commission and ALABAMA 200 could not be happier about the partnership with Vulcan Park and Museum and Spire to make this year’s Fourth of July a celebration of both the nation’s birthday and Alabama’s biggest anniversary,” said Lamar. “It will be one ‘for the history books!’”

The Alabama Bicentennial Fireworks show is organized by Vulcan Park and Museum and presented by Spire with additional support from the Alabama Bicentennial Commission, Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau,  the City of Birmingham, Jefferson County Commission Bicentennial Celebration,  UAB Callahan Eye Hospital, City of Homewood, Pyro Shows of Alabama, iHeart Media, La Jefa, and WBRC Fox 6 News.
