NEWPORT NEWS—A grand fireworks display will culminate in an evening of family fun and entertainment on Monday, July 4 from 7pm to 9:15pm at Victory Landing Park in Newport News. The park, which is located at 50 25th Street, offers great views of the fireworks as they light up over the James River.

The event will feature free children’s activities—including inflatables and face painting—strolling entertainment, and the Tomcats Dixieland Band playing near the Victory Arch at the front of the park. Live music on the main stage will be provided by the United States Air Force (USAF) Heritage of America Band, Full Spectrum, from 7:30pm to 9pm. Free light-up giveaways will be available while supplies last, and on-site vendors will be selling a full range of food, drinks, and desserts.

The fireworks display will begin at 9pm. The show will be coordinated by the internationally award-winning company, Pyrotecnico.

Admission, activities, and parking are all free and open to the public. Parking is available at the Newport News City Hall parking lot and designated non-restricted public parking spaces throughout the Yard District. No pets, bicycles, alcohol, skateboards, or radios will be permitted inside the event area.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
