- Conch Street
North of Nags Head Fishing Pier
- Bladen Street

Jockey’s Ridge State Park is another ideal spot for viewing the fireworks. Other local fireworks shows may be seen but distantly. The park will be open late July 4th to accommodate visitors. Please call the park at 252-441-7132 for more information.
At the conclusion of the fireworks, spectator, pedestrian, and vehicular traffic exiting the area will be directed and controlled by Nags Head police officers.
