Independence Day is tomorrow and there are many celebrations happening throughout the region. Below, we provide some helpful information and a list of events happening all weekend.
First, if you decide to stay at home and shoot off your own fireworks, be sure you know what the fireworks laws are in your city. In Virginia Beach, it’s illegal to shoot off fireworks...yes, even sparklers. So no matter what you decide to do, know what you’re getting into before you celebrate. Here's a helpful link that includes the city ordinances for fireworks in each of the seven cities. Please be safe!
Second, if you’re headed down to the Oceanfront be sure to check the traffic before you head out. There will be re-routes on I-264 eastbound beginning at 8 pm on Thursday, July 4th.
