After the parade, head down to North Beach and stake out your favorite spot to watch Racine's spectacular fireworks! Bring along a blanket and a picnic basket and kick back until dusk. The annual fireworks show can be seen up and down the Lake Michigan shoreline. The 4th Fest of Greater Racine fireworks are sponsored by The City of Racine and Festival Foods.
The fireworks start after the sun sets and the skies are dark on Tuesday, July 4, 2023. Typically, that is around 8:45pm but this can vary based on the weather and the decisions of the fireworks company.
There is only street parking available in the neighborhoods surrounding North Beach. It gets busy, so be prepared to walk a bit. Please be courteous to those who live in the neighborhoods.
