Kill Devil Hills Independence Week Fireworks Set for Friday, July 7



The Town of Kill Devil Hills has a new fireworks contractor this year!  We happily welcome Pyrotechnico, an award-winning fireworks company from New Castle, PA, to Kill Devil Hills!  This year, the fireworks event will be conducted not on July 4th but on July 7th off of Avalon Pier, with a rain date of July 8th.  Throughout the search process we were told time and again that North Carolina-certified fireworks technicians are becoming scarce and that became a reality when we could not find a vendor for the traditional July 4th celebration.  The date change, though, just gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy fireworks displays at other Dare County locations on the 4th and then come to Kill Devil Hills beaches the evening of July 7th, at dark.  Representing Pyrotechnico, Justin Pruett has visited the Avalon Pier and found the location to be satisfactory for this year’s event.  On behalf of Pyrotechnico, he has voiced excitement over his company’s new relationship with Kill Devil Hills and the pier location.  Avalon Pier associates are equally enthusiastic about hosting this year’s fireworks celebration.  
So, pack a snack, bring a chair, unroll a blanket, get some sand between your toes, and have a dazzling good time at Kill Devil Hills’ Independence Week fireworks celebration on Friday, July 7th, with a rain date on July 8th, at dark on the beach!
