Matthews Alive Fireworks Viewing Locations
On Saturday, September 2nd, 2017, at 10 pm,
Matthews Alive will present its FIRST EVER fireworks show, in celebration of our 25th Anniversary!
The fireworks show will be launched from an area OUTSIDE of the Festival’s “footprint”, so the show will best be viewed from one of the following two locations.
At both locations, alcohol and pets are prohibited.
The Arthur Goodman Park / Matthews Athletic & Recreation Association (MARA)
The Goodman Park parking lots, at MARA, will be available for FREE parking during the fireworks. Both their main parking lot, as well as the smaller lot at the front of the park (along Trade Street), will be open and great locations for viewing the fireworks. MARA is located at 1200 S Trade St, Matthews, NC (Google Maps Link to address).

This fireworks show would not be possible without MARA’s support and willingness to open their facilities to us. Thank you, MARA, for allowing us to launch the fireworks from your property, and your enthusiastic support of the 25th Matthews Alive Festival!
Matthews United Methodist Church
The Matthews United Methodist Church is excited to welcome patrons to use their parking lot, for FREE, for a viewing site. Drive there and park, or walk to the church’s parking lot if more convenient! The church address is 801 S Trade St, Matthews, NC 28105 (Google Maps link to address).
Parking directions – use the church entrance located at the FullwoodLlane intersection/stoplight. After coming into the church entrance, turn immediately right, and park in the marked spaces toward the back part of the lot. Our goal is to leave as much of the front part of the lot open for patrons who are standing and/or seated. Fireworks Parking Lot MUMC
Thank you to the church for extending this to our patrons, at NO Cost, and embracing this fireworks show by opening your lots so enthusiastically.
