The Mountview Restaurant, located in the Lodge at Fontana Village, will be offering evening dinner seating for guests wishing to view the fireworks from the lodge. Reservations for the Mountview Restaurant are highly recommended.
Guests will be getting their chairs and blankets ready early for the best fireworks in the Smokies starting promptly at 10:00pm on July 4th in the center of the Village. Come early for seating on the Wildwood Grill porch. The incredible overhead display of pyrotechnics is always the favorite of guests and the perfect kick-off to the 2014 Independence Day weekend festivities.
