July 4, 2016 – Point State Park – Downtown Pittsburgh
Anywhere you are in Pittsburgh, you’ll find birthday parties for the good old U.S.A.. Local newspapers will carry all of the particulars, so you can find anything from huge fireworks displays – to small-town parades and picnics.
Point State Park… located at the tip of Pittsburgh’s Golden Triangle … is the site of Pittsburgh’s daylong Independence Day celebration. Musical acts and entertainment start in the afternoon, and end with a 21-gun salute followed by a really big fireworks display at 9:36 PM. Thousands of people turn out, but you can also view the fireworks from a variety of less crowded locations nearby.
Fourth of July at Point State Park activities begin at 1 PM.
