We know Mobilians love a good firework show! As Independence Day draws closer, we want you to know where you can get your firework fix!

As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park this year, we are sure the Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular will be one for the books.  The spectacular will begin with a red, white and blue salute to our area Veterans and the finale will honor the Park’s 50th anniversary!

Area food trucks, along with the Battleship’s snack bar, The Galley, will be selling concessions on the grounds. In addition, local band Emerge will be playing from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

So, pack your lawn chairs and blankets and spend the evening celebrating July 4th the Mobile way at the USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park! Gates open at 5:00 pm, admission is $5 per car.

Does your idea of a perfect 4th of July involve sand between your toes?

Dauphin Island

Then picture yourself here and head down to Dauphin Island to watch fireworks from the public beach. The day kicks off early -- at 11:00 am join the Dauphin Island Veterans Association for a ceremony at the Water Tower Plaza honoring our veterans. Then spend the afternoon on the water and grab a sno-cone before the sun goes down. Family time and fireworks will begin at 8:45 pm at the public beach next door to the Little Red Schoolhouse.

Last, but certainly not least, what better way to celebrate America’s birthday than with fireworks AND America’s favorite pastime? Head to Hank Aaron Stadium to support Mobile’s Minor League Baseball team, the BayBears!

Fireworks at the Hank

The Hank has it all for adults and kids alike, with an inflatable amusement area right inside the stadium. Cheer for our home team in the opener of their 5 game series against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. The game begins at 7:05pm and the annual July 4th fireworks show will follow.

Have fun! And, of course, tag #SoMobile so we can see the fun too!
