Longwood Gardens will host six themed Fireworks & Fountains Shows this year, on Saturdays and Sundays from just before the Fourth of July and through October.
A basic adult ticket is $45, and there are discounts for children and members. For those tickets, you have to bring your own chair. A ticket with a chair from Longwood is $53, with discounts for members. Blankets are not permitted.
Admission is by advance sale only, with tickets for the first two events going on sale on June 1 at longwoodgardens.org. Tickets for the other events go on sale several weeks before each one. The tickets include all-day admission to the gardens.
Fireworks are being confirmed elsewhere: June 12 in New Castle and July 3 in Rehoboth Beach.
