Where to catch the Fireworks on the Coosa

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…on the river that is. Each year Alabamians hit the road to celebrate America’s birthday at their favorite place in the country, the Coosa. 


We hear that the fireworks this year will be BOOMIN’ so as you are finishing up your short work week, we thought we would give you an idea of where to catch the shows. 


When you’re out enjoying the river we hope you think of us! Tag us in your photos on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter! 


Fireworks are no fun when you are stuck in bed.

Don’t forget to check Swim Guide before you hit the water this weekend!
