It shames us to admit this, but sometimes Katy Perry knows what’s up. Case in point? Her very literal lyrics for “Firework.” And this July Fourth, you can own the night and watch the sky over the Charleston Harbor light up with fireworks from all directions.

The Carolina Queen paddle-wheeled riverboat will be loaded up with craft beer from Lagunitas, food from Roti Rolls, and live music by Weigh Station. Drew Yochum, director of sales for Charleston Harbor tours said, “Lee Distributors, who we are pairing with, chose Lagunitas for their selection and summer beers.” Cruise through the harbor on the two-hour tour with some of the best seats in Charleston for all the fireworks that will be going off. Just be sure to buy your tickets soon, they’re selling quickly and have a limited quantity left.
