Fireworks Soar All Summer Long At Broadway

Fireworks, whether they are a symbol of freedom on Independence Day, a memory of a first sneaked kiss with your junior high sweetheart or watching them with your children for the first time, they are the highlight of the sky every summer at Broadway at the Beach!

Here's a little history of the summertime favorite; many historians believe fireworks originated in China at some point between 600 and 900 A.D. when Chinese alchemist were trying to find an elixir for immortality! Okay, now let's fast forward more than a millennium. Fireworks may not have any immortality fix, but they are always the perfect ending to a day spent with friends and family!

This summer, Broadway at the Beach along with our friends at Helicopter Adventures will be lighting up the sky with a Fireworks Extravaganza every Tuesday now through Tuesday, August 29th and then every Friday starting Friday, June 23rd through Friday, August 18th all at 10pm (weather permitting of course!).

Summertime isn't the only time fireworks will rise above Lake Broadway. Click here to view when we will be shooting fireworks this fall and holiday season!

So whether it's winter, spring, summer or fall, we hope you make a date night or family night out and make memories under the stars and fireworks of Broadway at the Beach!

Before and after getting a picture with Spiderman and our community heroes, children can participate in a variety of kid-friendly games and interactive activities.
