This year, those of you that live in apartments in Raleigh can watch the fireworks downtown. This year, Raleigh's annual 4th of July fireworks display is moving from the NC State Fairgrounds to downtown.
"The 'Works: July 4th on Fayetteville Street," will begin at 4 p.m.
There will be eight different bands, the Maximus Circus, a beer and wine tasting tent, a picnic on the street and a kids' zone.
Downtown restaurants will bring their fare to the street and there will even be a watermelon seed spitting contest.
The day will end with a brilliant fireworks display at 9:30 p.m.
The City of Raleigh is bringing the 236th national birthday celebration to Downtown Raleigh.
Happy Fourth, from Auston Grove Apartment Homes.
