Recommendations for July 4th

Any thoughts for July 4th in Seward? We are a family of 4 (2a,2c) and will be staying for two nights.

Where are the fireworks held?

Just to check... You know that Seward becomes a zoo on the 4th? The population goes from 3,000 to over 30,000? A lot of the streets are blocked off.

I'm not saying don't go, but I just wanted you to be aware...

If you don't have a room reserved, do so TODAY. They will fill up early.

The Seward Chamber of Commerce site doesn't have details on the fireworks yet...

Don't expect much from the fireworks (especially compared with Boston's awesome part at the hatch); because it doesn't get very dark here that time of year.

The fireworks are at midnight on the 3rd, just south of the small boat harbor near the baseball fields. I always enjoy them and being in Seward we have clouds alot which can add to the affect.

The biggest advice I can give is don't drive and don't try to park anywhere near downtown on the 4th. The main street is shut down for the races and there are food/craft booths, games etc.

It's a great family event!!
