Fireworks near Harpers Ferry

We are heading that way for July 4th and was wondering if there were any Firework's displays for the 4th or the 5th that were close to Harpers Ferry? Also, looking for good pubs, bars, etc to enjoy? Love the old bars with some history behind them! Thanks!

1. Re: Fireworks near Harpers Ferry

Jefferson County usually hosts community fireworks in Sam Michael's Park (June 29th). There's also a great show at nearby Antietam Battlefield with a concert by the Maryland Symphony Orchestra (July 6). The battlefield is in the tiny burg of Sharpsburg, MD (about 30 mins. from Harpers Ferry). Because the roads are narrow and the fireworks draw a big crowd the roads are congested. Plan to arrive early with a picnic dinner (or buy concessions at the park) and be prepared to walk a distance onto the battlefield.

On the 4th, Harpers Ferry has a very Norman Rockwell-esque cookout around noon at the town bandstand with a performance by the Rohrersville Band.
