The city of Birmingham is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2021, and it’s not a surprise that Vulcan will be on top of it all.

Vulcan, a landmark that symbolizes Birmingham’s roots in the iron and steel industry, stands tall atop Red Mountain and will oversee Alabama’s largest Fourth of July celebration, an event that will feature an array of fireworks honoring both the city’s sesquicentennial and the nation’s birthday.

The Medical Properties Trust Thunder on the Mountain – which begins at 9 p.m., on July 4 – is presented by retailers Hibbett Sports and City Gear and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Callahan Eye Hospital.
