Brier Creek Fireworks & 4th of July Celebration

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is America's Birthday! Time to enjoy the fireworks and celebrate the red, white, and blue at Brier Creek Commons annual fireworks show.

Show your American pride by wearing red, white, and/or blue! Bring a blanket or chairs and your own picnic (I will bring cupcakes to share). The fireworks show begins at 8:30pm, but we want to allow plenty of time to secure a park, a comfortable spot on the lawn, and socializing.  I will arrive around 6:30pm to be available for TUT first-timers and early birds.  With such a huge interest in this event, I recommend that you arrive no later than 7:30pm.

Our location allows for plenty of parking, unobstructed fireworks views, and a grassy area to spread out and get comfortable.  Need a visual of where we will meet, check out this link!

If somehow you get lost on the day of the event, please text me at [masked].

    I feel so dumb...so i came to brier creek to see the fire all alone. But what I fail to do was read the email and it had all the details where everyone was meeting. I will read thoroughly next time. Looking for to the next event.

    Random solicitation: Does anyone have an OLD ipod that they dont use and want to let go for $20 today? I'm talking about an old but working ipod mini or classic; any model really. Honestly I just leave it in my car year round unless I'm adding new tracks to it. After 6 years my mini got fed up with the heat I guess. Thanks.
