Two parking lots and a free shuttle will be available again this year for attendees of Shelter Cove Harbour's July 4 event. The event's fireworks display, to be held at dusk on July 4 over the Broad Creek, is expected to be the largest display on the island.
Secure auxiliary parking will be available at Chaplin Park off of Singleton Beach Road and at the Hargray parking lot along U.S. 278. Traffic will be directed from U.s. 278 to the designated parking areas, and each lot will have onsite security officers.
Attendees to the event can park for free at these lots, board one of several shuttles that will run continuously from 5 p.m.-11 p.m. and be dropped off at Shelter Cove Harbour for the fireworks and other entertainment. They can then catch the shuttle upon the conclusion of the event to be taken back to the parking lots.
Walking or riding bikes is another alternative to avoid parking and traffic problems. Those walking or biking from Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort must use the pedestrian bridge that passes underneath U.S. 278 to bypass highway traffic.
