Fireworks, the traditional highlight of the July 4 weekend, will light up the sky in several locations in Sussex County this year.
Starting with Rehoboth Beach on Sunday, July 2, residents and visitors can choose from five fireworks displays.
Approximately 80,000 people are expected for Rehoboth's display at 9:15 p.m. The fireworks will be launched from the ocean off Rehoboth Avenue but will be visible throughout the Rehoboth-Dewey Beach oceanfront.
On Tuesday, July 4, fireworks displays will be offered in Bethany Beach, at the Dagsboro Church of God, Slaughter Beach and Laurel. Bethany's show begins at 9:30 p.m. while the others start at dusk.
Bethany's fireworks will be launched from the ocean off Wellington Parkway. The Dagsboro Church of God is located on U.S. 113 in Dagsboro
In addition to fireworks, the traditional Bethany Beach Fourth of July parade begins at noon. Floats and thousands of youngsters on decorated bikes highlight the parade. The grand marshall is former Bethany Beach mayor Bill Collins.
Besides fireworks, the Dagsboro Church of God hosts a day-long Family Day celebration with Christian musical entertainment, children's activities and amusements, and a patriotic musical production just before the fireworks. The event is free except for food.
