  1. Our favorite place to see the fireworks is from the BB&T building. It’s so close to the bridge! V.I.P. seats at this event would make this something my girls would never forget. And mom wouldn’t either!!!!

  2. My family has always went up the hill from the Civic Coliseum to the police parking lot & spread out blankets on the grassy area. We roll the windows down & blast the music on the radio & have a little picnic while watching the fireworks. We aren’t close to all the action, but we aren’t the most social of people, so it worked out well. Fun times…

  3. We have two small children and have never been to Boomsday. Too scared with the little ones. I love fireworks and the only way I would get to enjoy them is with the VIP pass.

  4. I love being in the middle of the action! Going down early with a group of friends some portable chairs and blankets. We play cards and listen to the music.

  5. Never been to Boomsday. Always wanted to go. Especially, now that we have two kids. We did take the on top of the Market Square parking garage for the 4th. It was the first time they saw fireworks. They had a blast.

  6. The best place to catch the best view of the booms is definitely on a boat, but I really enjoyed sitting with my best friend and her boyfriend and the guy they set me up with along the low wall on the lake side of TBA!

  7. I work in the First TN Building, so we like to go into the office where it is uncrowded and watch it there, although it muffles the sound quite a bit.

  8. I love to catch the bankside down near the festivities behind the star1021 booth. I love being close and in the crowd of people. I’ve never seen it VIP, so that would be awesome and the kids would love it!

  9. My favorite spot was always World’s Fair Park – nice and quiet but you still have a great view. It WAS my favorite spot – until we were fortunate enough to see them from a boat last year. I can’t imagine a better view than what we had!

  10. My favorite place to watch fireworks is down on the river front on neiland dr. i love the atmosphere for the people the food the activites. its a great place for family and fun. i have been going since i was a child and continue going until i get old.

  11. I just moved to Knoxville so this will be my first year attending Boomsday and I would love to get a VIP pass! 🙂

  12. I’m new to Knoxville so I have no idea where the best place is to catch fireworks but I hear Boomsday is a lot of fun!

  13. I’m a fan of the downtown parking garage at the Knox County Jail on Main Street that faces the river. You walk down a short ramp that, if you don’t know what you’re doing, you would never think to walk down. However, there are obvious drawbacks to this plan of hanging out outside of jail. But, its never crowded and a front row view. See you there! Oh, and please behave.

  14. Our favorite place has been our friends house next door to the United Way building! It was a fantastic long range view of the fireworks!

  15. Random question…anybody know what they’ll do about Boomsday once they shut the bridge down for the reconstruction?

  16. My favorite place is pretty much anywhere that my friends are. Once I watched it from out in East Knox, and another right along the river! A third time, I had to work in downtown, so I was hearing it but couldn’t see the fireworks. That was not my fave.

  17. We love Knoxville, But never got to come to boomsday before but this year we are planning on it. Would be extremly nice to get to see it VIP I have loved fireworks since I was a little girl, such a magical time. It makes you feel that the world is a little better if only for a moment….

  18. The energy of all those people does not compare to those last 5 to 10 mins before the fireworks start. The anxiety is unbelievable and then you hear the first boom. WOW!! Then the music and fireworks show takes you to a wonderland of fun. We are also sandwiched in a sea of people on Neyland Dr.
