I'd love to know safe places to park a car, get out, watch for free for a while -- from a public road, parking lot, park that's in the township or close by... anyone have suggestions? thanks

I'm with you, Ann. Where can people go that they don't have to share the road with thousands of other people?

Try the Park & Ride area adjacent to the Charcoal at Rts 222 & 309 / 78. There you can see the fireworks at Dorney then Breinigsville.

nothing in life is free, businesses and charities spend thousands of dollars to entertain their guests or to raise money for their organizations. Problem with society is too many people are looking to avoid paying but yet wanting quality entertainment on other peoples dime. The minimum one can do is patronize the business or make a significant donation to the charitable entity

I must admit I am fortunate enough to see the fireworks at Coca Cola Park from my apartment in Catasauqua, Go Pigs!

Lehigh County soccer fields on Parkway/Broadway offer a fair view of Dorney fireworks.

Great Show in West Allentown. Staked out a nice spot next to Muhlenberg College library.
