PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – More fireworks than ever before will be lighting up the sky in Center City Philadelphia this summer.
Jodie Milkman, with the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, says, “This year we are introducing a free Friday night light fireworks program beginning Friday July 27th and every Friday night through the end of August. We have the Philadelphia Orchestra performing on that first Friday night on July 27th and then we have great smooth jazz summer night concerts every Friday night in August followed by fireworks.”
You can see the Camden Riversharks’ fireworks after games from the Philly side on the Race Street Pier beginning June 1st.
And during the Welcome America festivities there will be two fireworks extravaganzas: one on June 30th along Penn’s Landing, the other on the 4th of July along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
City Representative Melanie Johnson says make your way to the Parkway.
“When you see those fireworks over the Philadelphia Museum of Art, it’s just incredible. It ends a perfect summer evening.”
