I think fireworks are best observed from a place of elevation. They appear more dramatic and one can gain the best perspective of the whole display as it reaches up toward the night sky. Asheville has many peaks that are capable of providing just that very thing. Every year here At Cumberland Falls Bed and Breakfast Inn guests return to the house having discovered another vantage point. Of course, there are also those that prefer the up close and personal experience gained by being in throngs of people all looking for a sparkling good time as they seek out there special place in Pack Square. All things "4th of July" commence in this area at about 4:30 p.m. finishing in the grand finale of fireworks at 9:30 p.m.
Bring your lawn chairs or a blanket and seek your spot early.
Music, food and vendors will all be on hand offering plenty of choices for things to buy, food to eat and more.
Near Asheville there will also be celebrations at the following locations:
Antique Car Show:
If firewords is not your first love, fear not----Asheville can still deliver the goods.
We host folks at our Asheville Bed and Breakfast that mark this date on the calendar for an entirely different reason. The Antique Car Show will be on for July 2, 3, and 4th showcasing 18 acres dedicated to all lovers of automobiles past and present. It will be held at the Western North Carolina Ag Center near the Asheville Airport.
Shindig on the Green: If mountain music is more to your liking than the sound of blasting fireworks, July 3rd is just one of several Saturdays when you could take yourself out for some Southern Appalachian mountain culture and guitar picking. It's free. Bring lawn chairs or blanket, find your sweet spot and enjoy.
Summertime Art and Crafts Show: In their 21st year this show is home to the most respected and unique artisans calling the Appalachian mountains their home. This year they expect more than 100 exhibitors. Some of their items will be available for sale. About one hour drive.
