Eight Years and Counting
This will be the eighth year Tuscaloosa has held the fireworks celebration on the river, and the organizers have really fine-tuned the process. Last year, the kids’ zone and the gates opened at the same time, but the organizers are doing it a little differently this year. This year, the kids’ zone starts up at six, a full hour before the gates open. The kids’ zone will still be loaded with inflatables, games, prizes, and more, so be sure to come early. There is something for kids of various ages, so bring the entire crew along.
Once the gates open, it’ll be time to enjoy some food, beverages, and music. This event is known for its patriotic music, especially when the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra takes the stage. It’ll start at 8 p.m., providing the perfect lead into the fireworks. You’ll definitely be in the patriotic spirit by the time the symphony orchestra finishes its set.
Oh, and those fireworks. You seriously have to see them to believe them. The fireworks display takes place over the Black Warrior River, and it is an explosion of colors. Your heart will swell with patriotic pride when you watch the fireworks explode over the river.
