About: In partnership with Old Fourth Ward Business Association, Ponce City Market is hosting the second annual “Fireworks in Fourth Ward” to celebrate the Fourth of July. Free and open to the public, the community event will be held across the street from Ponce City Market at Historic Fourth Ward Park from 5pm to 11pm. Guests are invited to bring a picnic or enjoy bites from local vendors and food trucks, and King of Pops and Queen of Cream will also be serving frozen desserts. Local favorites including New Realm Brewing Company and Old Fourth Distillery will provide libations; wine, margaritas and a vodka punch will also be available for purchase (no outside alcohol is allowed). All beverage proceeds will directly benefit the Old Fourth Ward Business Association, whose mission is to create a safe and sustainable community environment for businesses and residents alike. In the park, there will be live music from local Atlanta band Sucker Punch, covering hits from the 90’s and 00’s. Once the sun sets, the evening will culminate in a grand fireworks show, and DJ Q-Tip will be spinning a soundtrack coordinated with the display. The Fourth of July fireworks show can also be seen from The Roof at Ponce City Market during their annual Fourth of July celebration. The kid-friendly event begins at 5pm and will have live entertainment, a DJ and activities for kids. There will be two ticket levels – VIP access and General Admission – for adults, and tickets for children will be offered at a lower price point. While space is available, guests can purchase walk-up tickets on July 4 for the evening fireworks show.
