The Celebrate US! Charlottesville fireworks show will make a return this year, kicking off at 9 p.m. July 4, with a rain date of July 5. The event will take place on Carter’s Mountain and televised live on MeTV and replayed on FOX Virginia at 10:30 p.m.
The fireworks display is a fundraiser with all net proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House of Charlottesville to provide temporary housing to children and families of the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital. Last year, the show benefited the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
Wendell Wood is the presenting sponsor and FOX Virginia is the exclusive television partner.
