Where Can I See the Fireworks in Moore County, North Carolina?

4th of July is such a great time!  In celebration of our freedom we spend time with family and friends enjoying vacations, picnics, swimming, and best of all Fireworks!

If you are in the Pinehurst and Southern Pines area there is no need to wait until dark for the fun to begin!  Aberdeen Lake Park activities begin at 5:30 with music starting at 6.  The admission is free and a wristband can be purchased for the children to participate in games and activities, play in the bouncy house, get their faces painted and win prizes.  Be sure to leave the pets and alcoholic beverages at home.  Fireworks begin at dark.

The fun begins at the Pinehurst Harness Track at 6 p.m. with pony rides, hayrides, inflatables and entertainment by the Lake Side Drive Band.  Fireworks begin at 9:15.

Food vendors will be available at both venues.  Bring your blankets, your chairs and enjoy the evening.

Towering Pines Real Estate sends a special thank you to all those who have and continue to protect our freedom!
