Chapel Hill 4th of July Celebration
Sunday, July 4, 2010, hours TBA (prior years 7 - 10pm) (check website below for 2010 hours)
Community celebration with fireworks, live music, food, and fun!  Free entertainment and fireworks display in the University of North Carolina's Kenan Memorial Stadium.  Performers on stage from 7pm to 9:25pm.  Fireworks scheduled to begin at 9:30pm.  Recommended parking is in the Craig, Dogwood and Cardinal Parking Decks off of Manning Drive.  Disability parking available in the Bell Tower Lot.  Gates 5 and 6 on Kenan Statium's South side will be open with seating available on the South side only.  Lower and upper levels will be open.  Alcohol prohibited - no coolers, outside containers or food items allowed. ***** Note for families with babies and young children: Since the Chapel Hill fireworks are fired in the stadium, surrounded entirely by stadium seats, which produce echoes and amplify the firework booms, they are extremely loud.  We found them to be much louder than any fireworks display we have ever attended in other cities (since we previously had attended only open air fireworks displays, not fireworks in a stadium).  We rarely editorialize, but we thought we would mention that the stadium fireworks display may be too loud especially for babies and young children's sensitive ears.
