Wake Forest NC 4th of July Celebrations

Wake Forest NC goes ALL out for 4th of July and this year is NO exception!  Not only do we have an incredible Fireworks display but it’s a party for days!  The 4th of July Celebration starts on Saturday July 3rd and rolls right through Monday July 5th.  Here is the latest of what’s on the schedule:

Fireworks Spectacular
Heritage High School (1150 Forestville Road, Wake Forest NC)
Gates open at 5:30pm and admission is $5 per person (Children under the age of 6 are FREE)

The Band of Oz will be performing again this year and they are amazing!  The Band of Oz is a 1997 Beach Music Hall of Fame inductee and have performed at many of the Wake Forest NC July 4th Celebrations.  The Band of Oz ALWAYS gets the crowd dancing!

Also making an appearance for the Fireworks Spectacular is the Don Carrington Parachute Team.  It is so exciting to see them skydive into the event and besides I have a little personal knowledge of the team and what they do!  🙂

After the sun goes down you can EXPECT one of the most amazing fireworks displays for miles and miles around!
