Once again, this year, residents of the greater Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area will be treated to one of the most popular events of the summer. Get ready for the EQT Flashes of Freedom Fireworks Show at the 4th of July Festival in Pittsburgh. There’s going to be lots of food, fun, and music for everyone with great activities for the whole family! The festival takes place on July 4th at Point State Park from 12 Noon until 10 PM. Be sure not to miss out on all of this fun!
Lots of Great Food & Fun
The festival will have food trucks and vendors from all over the Pittsburgh area serving up classic festival treats. You’ll find tasty corn dogs, funnel cakes, ice cream, lemonade, specialties, and more! There will also be Chinese food, Italian sausages, gyros, world class BBQ and of course everyone’s favorite kettle corn! Be sure to save room for hand cut fresh French fries and some of the best cheese steaks ever to come off a grill.
The Kids Zone will have airbrush tattoos, interactive activities, red, white, and blue balloon art, a patriotic kid’s mural and more. Be sure to check out the 18th-century reenactors, fine arts display, and even the juggling Uncle Sam.
Live Music & More
Live music will be presented on the main stage and other areas throughout the park. There will also be drum and fife presentations, and of course, the fireworks show will be accompanied by a patriotic soundtrack that will stir the heart and soul of all in attendance. Keep an eye out for the USAF flyover, and get there early to watch the official flag raising ceremony to open the festival.
Fireworks Show Not to Be Missed
The main event, of course, is the fireworks display presented by EQT and produced by Pyrotecnico. It takes place at the confluence of the three rivers and is choreographed to a patriotic soundtrack that will be broadcast throughout the park and simulcast through the radio. Will you be viewing the fireworks from another location? No worries! You can still listen to the firework show soundtrack. Just tune-in to KDKA 1020AM, and it will seem as if you’re sitting front row at the show! This is one of the largest and most beautiful displays in the state. Come out and watch this annual Pittsburgh tradition of freedom and history.
