Atlantic City's New July 4th Fireworks Do AC Mega-Show

Fireworks Surround the Island From the AC Beach and AC Marina

9:30 p.m., Thursday, July 4th

Imagine standing on the famous AC Boardwalk at the legendary Steel Pier and seeing fireworks everywhere — to the left and to the right and even behind you! On this July 4th, the rocket's red glare will be 10,000 multicolored fireworks that will illuminate the night. The "DO AC Fireworks Spectacular" is four beautifully choreographed, visually stunning and elaborate fireworks shows along the Atlantic City Boardwalk and Marina on Thursday, July 4 starting at 9:30 p.m. The show is 20 minutes long and will be visible throughout Absecon Island.

The gorgeous, multihued pyrotechnics will originate from four separate locations: the beach near New Hampshire Avenue; Martin Luther King Boulevard; Hartford Avenue; and MGM Resorts Boulevard in the Marina District.

"Everywhere you look you'll see fireworks," explained Liza Cartmell, ACA President. "We're delighted to be able to produce a fireworks spectacular that incorporates the entire Tourism District and provides great viewing areas throughout the island."

The show is being created by the top name in fireworks entertainment, Fireworks by Grucci. It will be choreographed to music which will be broadcast by 95.1 WAYV FM radio.

Fireworks by Grucci is a nationally-acclaimed fireworks entertainment production company that specializes in visual extravaganzas designed for special events around the world. Known as "America's First Family of Fireworks," Grucci has produced shows for seven consecutive U.S. Presidential Inaugurations, Olympic Games and World's Fairs.
