Biggest Fireworks Display

Stacie Wells

If you are new to the Augusta area and are looking for the best fireworks display nearby, look no further than Thunder Over Evans. Previously Thunder Over Augusta, this event is now held at Evans Towne Center Park in celebration of Armed Forces Day. It’s billed as the “largest fireworks display in Georgia” and is free to the public.

If the fireworks display of 2018 is anything like years past, I can guarantee you that you’re in for a treat. You’ll want to make sure to bring sunglasses to protect your eyes from the falling debris. Anyone who has seen the fireworks finale in person will tell you that you feel them as much as you watch them. It is intense.

Go ahead and mark your calendar for this year’s event on May 19, 2018. Evans Towne Center Park is scheduled to open at 11 am for a full day of family-friendly activities. Blankets and chairs are welcome, but leave the hard coolers, tents, and pets at home. There is usually food on site available for purchase.
