This year the show will be produced from a barge in the middle of the Savannah River on the west end of River Street, Savannah’s Waterfront Association hopes this new location will provide the best visibility all along the river.

“It feels so great to be able to do something for the whole community, the fireworks, the entertainment, it is free and open to the public so we are thrilled to invite everybody to come down and celebrate our nation’s birthday on Savannah’s waterfront,” said Julie Musselman from Savannah’s Waterfront Association.

And if you are heading downtown, some parking tips to keep in mind. All City of Savannah parking garages will be offering a flat rate of $10 for the day on Monday. Also, all metered parking will be free on July 4th.
