Here are the details:

  • The ACA is holding a contest to curate the soundtrack to this year's display. Users are asked to choose song selections from 5 categories.
  • Categories include "America the Beautiful," "The Star Spangled Banner," "God Bless America," Blake Shelton (who will be playing a free beach concert in Atlantic City on July 31 ) songs and Pop-Top 40 tunes such as Katy Perry's "Firework."
  • Top music selected will then be used as the official soundtrack for the July 4 fireworks in Atlantic City.
  • Visit www.facebook.com/doatlanticcity to vote on your song choices. The DO AC Facebook page has a dedicated tab called "July 4th Music"

Fourth of July weekend kicks off with one of the top five fireworks displays in the country. The Atlantic City July 4 Fireworks will take place over the ocean off the Atlantic City beaches and marina. This show, which begins at 9:30 p.m., and is free to the general public, is so big that it takes two ocean barges and one marina platform to fill the island's entire sky.
