Where to watch the fireworks - the local’s perspective. By Melissa Esham 6/23/2015 I asked all of the Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley employees where they watch the fireworks. The overwhelming response of those who didn’t want to fight the traffic was right here at Willard’s Elementary school. The event happens on July 3 rd – one day early and is a free family environment for all. Other great responses: “In a boat,” or my favorite “I am not telling – I don’t want anyone to crowd my spot.” The local community does an incredible job of multiple displays in the area. Below is a short list of where you can see the fireworks this 4 th of July.
