Fourth of July Fireworks

Fourth of July Fireworks

As the birthplace of America, Philadelphia shines brightest on July 4. Following a live music performance, fireworks blaze over the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the finale of the city’s multiday Wawa Welcome America bash. Timed perfectly with live music, the pyrotechnical display paints the skies over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
