Nags Head July 4th Fireworks Celebration Guide

Outer Banks Fireworks

The Nags Head Fishing Pier at milepost 11.5 will be the site of a July 4th celebration to remember! The Independence Day fireworks celebration will begin around 9:25 PM on July 4th and will last approximately 25 minutes.

The folks at Zambelli Fireworks, who are the same people responsible for the Kill Devil Hills fireworks display just 5 miles to the north, will be responsible for this year’s display in Nags Head.

If you want our two cents, one of the best spots to enjoy the Nags Head fireworks display is from atop one of the sand dunes at Jockey’s Ridge State Park, located across the street from Kill Hawk Kites’ flagship store and the Jockey’s Ridge Crossing shopping complex.

Vacationers and locals should note that these are also great spots to watch the fireworks display:

  • The beach south of Nags Head Fishing Pier
  • The beach north of Nags Head Fishing Pier
  • Curlew Street
  • Bladen Street
  • Hollowell Street
  • Bittern Street
  • Conch Street
  • Bonnett Street
  • Blackman Street
  • Barnes Street

If you are staying in a house that’s near milepost 11.5, you should have no problems viewing the fireworks – especially if you have a second or third story balcony! If you are lucky enough to be staying in a home that’s oceanfront, semi-oceanfront, or between the roads in Nags Head, consider walking over the beach with a chair or blanket.

If you aren’t able to walk, there will, of course, be parking available at the various public beach accesses in Nags Head. Of course, these spots will fill up quickly, so arrive early if you plan on driving. If you plan on watching the fireworks display at Nags Head Fishing Pier, you may be able to watch the display at milepost 5 at the same time!
