CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Fourth of July fireworks will still light up the night sky this year in Albemarle County.

The fireworks will be set off at 9:15 p.m. They will be visible in the southern sky toward Monticello Mountain and Carter Mountain.

People are asked to view the display from their homes or cars to help maintain social distancing.


The “Save the Fireworks” Team has confirmed a private property in Albemarle County to present the 4th of July fireworks to Charlottesville and surrounding areas. Wendell Wood will host the 9:15 pm show and will be visible in the Southern sky toward Monticello Mountain and Carters Mountain. There will be no access to the owner’s property so the public is asked to view from their homes and/or cars for social distancing.
