Pier Village Celebration
This celebration has been an island tradition for over 60 years. The fireworks show has made this festival a smashing success every year. But it is not only the fireworks that make this celebration so special, as the festivities run from July 2nd to the 5th from 10 am to 5 pm every day. You can enjoy arts and crafts shows, amazing food, a 5K fun run, and so much more. Festivities crescendo with the fireworks display during the evening of the 4th and the 5th acts as more of a day of relaxation when you can decompress after all of the festivities. The fireworks begin at 9 pm and they promise to be some of the best that you have ever seen. Sit back in a lawn chair with friends and family at Neptune Park as you enjoy the fireworks and their reflections glistening off of the Atlantic Ocean. You can enjoy all of this for the low price of $10.
As St. Simons Island is clustered very tightly together with the three other islands that make up the Golden Isles, there are plenty of other fireworks shows happening very close to its shores. This allows you to avoid paying for entry into a fireworks show as they are happening on all sides of the island. When you set up shop at Neptune Park, you can catch fireworks to the south and west at Jekyll Island and Brunswick respectively. To catch some fireworks from Sea Island and Little St. Simons Island, hunker down on the eastern side of the island.
You won’t find an area of the country that takes the Fourth of July more seriously than St. Simons Island, and it shows in the fireworks displays that they put on every year. For a Fourth of July experience unlike any that you have ever had, check out St. Simons Island for the holiday this year.
