This Fourth of July, Ponce City Market will host its first-ever fireworks show and celebration called “Fireworks in Fourth Ward,” according to a PCM press release.
The inaugural festival, put on in collaboration with the Old Fourth Ward Business Association (OFWBA), will be held across the street from Ponce City Market at the Historic Fourth Ward Park from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 4.
Free and open to the public, the event will offer family-friendly activities like cornhole, face painting and more. Food from local vendors and food trucks will also be available, along with pours from wine tents, Creature Comforts and Three Taverns Craft Beers. All beverage proceeds will benefit the OFWBA.
Of course, the grand finale will be the fireworks show. According to the release, attendees can stream or download a curated soundtrack from PCM’s website and listen to Independence Day-themed songs alongside the fireworks.
The fireworks can also be seen from The Roof at Ponce City Market during their Rooftop Backyard BBQ, a ticketed, luau-themed event featuring food, games and entertainment.
The event is expected to draw thousands of guests, according to the release, and attendees are encouraged to bike, walk or use a ride-share service to get to the show.
PCM restaurants and shops will operate during normal hours, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., on July 4.
