We turned to our community of local moms for the best spots around Birmingham to watch fireworks, and here’s what we found!

  • Homewood for sure! Homewood park or 18th street in Homewood have great views. They usually have a street party on 18th street with rides and activities—kids can get wristbands and there’s lots to do leading up to the show.
  • Last year we loved parking at the Hoover Met and watching the fireworks from our car. It was so helpful since we had little ones to contain! 
  • The lawn at Saint Rose Academy, it’s a hill so no one’s view gets blocked!
  • Top of Regions Bank parking lot in Homewood for Vulcan fireworks
  • Top of the parking decks at St. Vincent’s or UAB for Vulcan fireworks
  • UAB softball field parking lot
  • Callahan Eye Hospital parking deck
  • Oak Mountain
  • Near Oasis Counseling Downtown
  • Thompson High School

Kristina G
Kristina is an Alabama native who came to Birmingham in 2005 for college (has it really been 15 years?!). She had lived in Muscle Shoals her whole life up until that point. After graduating from UAB in 2009 with a degree in journalism and a minor in music, she married Paul in 2011. Paul has worked in the tech industry since 2009. Kristina has had several jobs in the area - everything from banking, veterinary medicine and receptionist. She most recently worked from home as low-level tech support. Kristina and Paul had the biggest surprise of their lives when they went in for the first 8-week ultrasound and found out that they were expecting "spontaneous" twins! Everything was going to change already, but they had to multiply it by two! Two girls, Elle and June, were born in July 2019 and nothing has been the same since. Kristina is now a stay-at-home mom to Elle and June and it has been the most rewarding job of all! Kristina, Paul, Elle and June make home in Alabaster, where you can usually find them on the weekends. They like going around to the things in the area, such as shopping and going on walks in the park. The babies are famous - neither Kristina or Paul can go anywhere alone without people asking about the twins!
