The Details: 

4th of July Fireworks in Gainesville, GA Hall County

What time do the fireworks start in Hall County, Georgia?

There are many great events if you want to stay local.  The American Legion in Gainesville, Georgia is putting on a fireworks display at Laurel Park in Gainesville, GA.  The Park is located at 3100 Old Cleveland Highway.  The park will be open during the day with activities and use of the park for picnic goers with views of Lanier.  The fireworks show starts at dusk, which is around 9pm.

Speaking of Lanier, what better way to spend the holiday than at Lake Lanier Islands.  Whether you’re in Forsyth or Hall County, this is a great place to be!  The show starts at dark, but the park opens at 10:00am with live entertainment , games and family activities planned during the day.

One place that’s always a favorite for those in North Georgia is at The Mall of Georgia in Buford, Georgia.  They are putting on their “Fabulous Fourth” celebration and they always have a lot going on!  Their fireworks show starts at 9:15pm which is around the time most shows get started in Georgia, but you’ll need to come early because the fun actually starts at 2:00pm featuring live music from local bands all the way up to 9pm.  After the fireworks display, you can stick around for a showing of Playing for Keeps at the mall’s Village Amphitheater.

If you are thinking about traveling out of Hall County and looking for a larger venue, you may want to visit the Centennial Olympic Park’s 4th of July Celebration in Atlanta, GA.  They begin their festivities at noon and they have a bunch of activities planned throughout the day for children such as splashing around in the fountain of rings, face painting, inflatables, arts and crafts.  Live music will be performed.  The fireworks finale is synchronized to patriotic music and is sure to be spectacular!

Another great place to go to see the fireworks is Lenox Square.  They have musical entertainment planned starting at 6pm and their fireworks show begins at 9pm.  I have heard this is one of the largest fireworks displays in Georgia and is not to be missed!

Fireworks Safety:

No matter where you are in North Georgia, whether it’s Gainesville, Flowery Branch, Oakwood, Dahlonega, Dawsonville, or Braselton, there are plenty of alternatives to putting on your own fireworks display.   Every year fireworks safety advocates warn about the dangers of putting on your own fireworks show and urge you to leave it to the professionals.

According to the Center for Disease Control there are 8,500 injuries a year relating to people using their own fireworks.  And, out of those injuries 70 to 75% occur within 30 days of July 4thChildren under the age of 14 have the greatest risk of being hospitalized for fireworks injuries.  7 people out of 100 are hospitalized every year and 40% of them are children.  10 to 14 year old boys make up the largest percentage of children who are hurt by fireworks.  They are 3 times as likely to be injured than girls.  Did you know that fireworks are responsible for $22.7 million in property damage every year and $100 million in medical costs?  It is a staggering amount when you think of the numbers that way.  With so many places to see the fireworks, it really isn’t worth the risk to you or your children.

Keep in mind that even though sparklers are legal in Georgia, they burn at 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.  Just because they’re legal, it doesn’t make them safe.

Have fun this Fourth of July, but most of all no matter where you choose to watch the fireworks we hope you and your family have a safe holiday!
