Multiple performance starting at 7:30! The oceanfront attract thousands of out-of-town visitors and local residents for a “star-spangled” salute to this great country of ours!
A stage erected on the beach at 20th Street becomes the focal point for a performance by Symphonicity (the symphony orchestra of the City of Virginia Beach) and the Virginia Beach Chorale. With a program that encompasses patriotic songs, Broadway standards, movie themes, and folk music, nostalgia reigns as the presentation segues into a magical fireworks show that explodes over the oceanfront in brilliant colors and patterns. Stars & Stripes Explosion is an unabashed tribute to the ideals, personalities, history, and music of the United States. Fireworks at 9:30.
