The Southeast’s largest fireworks show returned to Atlanta after a two-year hiatus

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Thousands attended the Southeast’s largest fireworks show in its return to Centennial Olympic Park Sunday night in downtown Atlanta.

Look Up Atlanta honored America’s 246th birthday and showcased the best of Atlanta including its sports teams, cultural diversity, food and art.

The fireworks show was delayed about 25 minutes because of a large truck that had parked in front of the fireworks staging area.


The celebration included performances by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Youth Orchestra and singer Angelica Hale, who appeared on “America’s Got Talent.”

Players from Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta Dream were in attendance and Black Hawk helicopters from the Georgia National Guard performed a flyover.
