Whalehead Independence Day Events & Fireworks
Location: Whalehead Estate/HIstoric Corolla Park
Time: 5pm to 9:30pm
Description:
Monday, July 5th, 2021
Independence Day Celebration
Historic Corolla Park
5pm – 9pm (or at the conclusion of the fireworks show)
Due to July 4 occasionally falling on a Saturday or Sunday, both extremely busy vacation rental change-over days on the Outer Banks, this event is not always held on July 4, as is the case this year. In keeping emergency management efforts and precautions top of mind with an event this size, we look forward to an amazing celebration on July 5! 
What better way to celebrate America’s independence than with free live music and a spectacular firework show on the northern Outer Banks?! Join Currituck Travel & Tourism at Historic Corolla Park for our Independence Day Celebration with loads of fun family activities and food provided by local vendors. Activities begin at 5:00 pm and conclude with fireworks at dusk. Admission is free and free parking is available at the park until lots are full. Please note that no coolers, alcohol or on-street parking is permitted. The Historic Corolla Park boat ramp is closed this day with no docking allowed. Dogs are permitted on leashes.
