The Town of Morehead City looks forward to lighting the sky from Sugarloaf Island July 4th at 9p.m. However, we want to stress the importance of staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage our residents and visitors to watch the fireworks from their cars, from their homes or by boat. For those who plan on watching outside from downtown, we ask that you spread out and follow Governor Cooper’s orders to avoid gatherings of more than 25 people, keep six feet apart, and wear a face mask. The concert originally scheduled for the evening of July 4th at Jaycee Park has been cancelled.
