Looking for a great place to watch the Independence Day fireworks in Norfolk? Head over to the July 4th celebration at Fort Monroe! This all-ages event offers great views of the fireworks along the fortress wall at 9:15 p.m., as well as a number of other fun activities all day long.
Begin the day with a visit to one of the area's beaches, where lifeguards will be on duty from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Learn about the military history around Fort Monroe at the Casemate Museum, and then at 6:30 p.m., enjoy a performance by the USAF Heritage of America Rhythm in Blue Ensemble. The Music by the Bay Summer Concert continues at 8 p.m., and then an Air Force flyover caps off the evening before the big fireworks show begins.
