The 4th of July holiday is such a fantastic time to be in Hilton Head Island! Picture fireworks, festivities, music and so much more to celebrate our independence and the summer itself.
This year our area has three fireworks displays for you that will be enjoyed whether you’re here on a family vacation, romantic getaway, or are one of our residents!
1. Shelter Cove Harbour
This free and family friendly 4th of July celebration takes place at Shelter Cove Harbour during our annual signature summer event, Harbourfest, which occurs June through August. At dusk on the 4th, you’ll see an extravagant display of fireworks over the harbor and you can even take a guided kayak tour to see the fireworks from a unique point of view! Shannon Tanner, a staple at Harbourfest since 1988, will be performing a variety of patriotic selections at 6:30pm and 8:00pm.
During HarbourFest, Shelter Cove features live entertainment seven nights a week, plus unforgettable food, arts and crafts from an array of vendors, bouncy houses, fireworks on Tuesdays and even more fun activities.
2. For live, outside entertainment, visit any of these three restaurants on the water, starting at 6:00pm:
The fireworks start at 9:30 and will be launched from a barge in the Intracoastal Waterway/Skull Creek. There will be food and drinks at all three locations, so they ask that you do not bring coolers.
3. Harbour Town
Harbour Town will have a variety of festivities including children’s activities, live music, food and drinks, and of course fireworks! The fireworks will begin about 9:15 (dusk) from a barge in Calibogue Sound. There is a $5.00 gate fee to enter the resort (unless you are a resident or guest staying on the resort) and a free shuttle service will be offered between Harbour Town and various parking lots in the Sea Pines Resort. Again, no coolers, please.
If you’ll be here in Hilton Head Island on vacation or are not familiar with the area, town ordinances prohibit the launch or discharge of fireworks within town limits and specifically from the beach.
