Cape May City Fireworks

Cape May 4th of July fireworks display takes place at Congress Beach on July 4th. The show begins at 9:00 pm and includes an hour of dazzling fireworks. Enjoy fantastic views of the show from the beach, promenade, or any property facing Beach Avenue.

In the event of rain, fireworks may be rescheduled or canceled.

If traveling by car, plan to arrive early as parking can be hard to find. Be prepared for traffic. Once the fireworks are over, Beach Avenue and the promenade may be congested.

Lower Township Fireworks

If you’ll be bayside, look for fireworks the day before or after Cape May City’s display. Pick a spot on the beach. Don’t forget a chair or towel since the sand can be chilly after sunset! There are vendors galore and carnival rides, too. It’s crowded, so expect to park and walk a couple blocks.
