Fourth of July in the Poconos

HomeeventsFourth of July in the Poconos

Independence Day has a special place on our calendar. It’s the day when people get together regardless of their political affiliations to celebrate this important day in the country’s history. It’s also the day when it feels fine to don your best red, white, and blue costume and feel as patriotic as the next person. But the 4th of July is also best known for something else: fireworks. Your dogs may hate the noise, but that’s something we all wait for every year. The Poconos take elaborate steps to celebrate this special day in style. Here’s a quick guide to the best fireworks in the area and the best times to catch them on your Poconos 4th of July getaway!

Honesdale Central Park

This free event starts in the evening. That’s the best time to enjoy the fireworks in all their splendor. The festivities usually start around 6.30 pm and include fun activities for the whole family. Plenty of food and live entertainment to keep everyone happy until the fireworks start.

Mount Airy Casino Resort

Everyone is invited to this free celebration of Independence Day. Around 9:30 in the evening the sky turns bright with all the colors of the fireworks. Just enjoy the show and take pride in the day that shaped our nation’s history. Only this event is free though. Other activities in the resort require fees for admission.

Dansbury Park, East Stroudsburg

This two-day Fourth of July Poconos event celebrates the patriotic holidays with much fanfare. It’s more of a carnival than a regular festival. Carnival rides, food trucks, games, live entertainment, and of course fireworks make this a really special event. Bring your whole family and enjoy the carnival in the spirit it was meant.

Skytop Lodge

Live music is what distinguishes Skytop Lodge’s celebration of Independence Day. The concessions also add a distinct flavor to the whole thing. You can purchase VIP tickets for the best seating places and enjoy the live performances.

Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark

The waterpark plans well for the Poconos 4th of July ever year. After 8 pm the celebrations are open to the public, but you can go earlier if you already have an admission ticket. This allows you extended access to the attractions as well as the abundance of food and live music. Around 9.30 pm the fireworks start, and everyone looks up to enjoy a splendid show.
