East Stroudsburg’s “Big Bang” 4th of July celebration starts at 3:00pm on Saturday, July 1st on Crystal Street. Crystal Street is home to many restaurants and small-business shopping opportunities.  Fireworks will take place after dark. Beforehand enjoy live music from local artists, grab a bite to eat from food trucks, or the local restaurants and check out the shopping nearby.

Here is a tip, only for Shawnee Insiders! The best place to see the fireworks display is on the Brodhead Creek Dike just below the Interborough Bridge in East Stroudsburg. Many locals park in the Walmart parking lot, in East Stroudsburg, and cross the street to the Dike. We recommend that you bring either lawn chairs or blankets to sit on the grassy dike.
