For the past 8-10 years, Fun Source Rentals has had the privilege to be associated with numerous wonderful 4th of July events. Many cities, churches and organizations put on spectacular firework shows and fun for the family; however, if you plan to come to fireworks on the mountain in Birmingham, there is one place that tops them all… The catch is, no one knows about it. On the backside of Red Mountain there is a street that is rich in quaint little stores, coffee shops, art galleries and friendly people. It is on this street where 4th of July has come alive for Fun Source Rentals over the past few years. The street is 18th St South in the heart of the city of Homewood. Set on a slight hill, 18th Street South offers the perfect unobstructed viewing area for the city of Birmingham’s fireworks on the mountain. The city of Homewood offers rides and games for the kids as well as the antiques and coffees for the parents leading up to the fireworks display. It is truly a relaxing event with great people to share it with. 18th Street is perfect for a blanket with your kids or a lawn chair for your parents and in my opinion — it is the best kept 4th of July secret in the city of Birmingham. Just a word of warning though, in order to get the best seat, get there early as festivities start around 5:30pm and end when the fireworks start.
