It looks like this year 4th of July festivities might be rained on, but here’s to hoping that the rain waits at least until after the fireworks. I have compiled a list of events that will be happening South of Atlanta. Weather permitting, there will be parades, fireworks, and independence day celebrations galore!
Turner Field-Braves Stadium
The Braves will be taking on the Miami Marlins today at 7:10p and afterwards enjoy a great fireworks show. Its bound to be a great game!
Centennial Olympic Park
Independence Day Celebration takes place downtown at olympic park, gates open at 6 pm. Enjoy some family time with food, music and a firework show at dark.
Fayetteville Festival Park Celebration
The city of Fayetteville will have a big indepence day celebration, full of music, food, and lots of family fun. Fayetteville was one of the two towns chosen for a special celebration funded by the Red, White, and You contest. So come check out the fun, it starts at 4:30pm.
Peachtree City Parade
The parade is a great way to kick off independence day celebrations. It takes place at 9 am on South Peachtree Parkway. Be sure to show up early to get a good spot!
Peachtree City Fireworks(Weather Permitting)
If Mother Nature cooperates the fireworks will be on tonight. The event takes place on drake field and willowbend road. There will be music and concessions available at City Hall plaza. Be sure to check the Peachtree City website for any cancelations: www.peachtree-city.org/events.
Newnan Parade & Fireworks show
The Newnan Parade has been canceled due to the possibility of bad weather. The Newnan Times Herald announced that it will not be rescheduled. Now, the fireworks show will not take place tonight but has been rescheduled for July 13th.
Now you have many choice to choose from to celebrate this special day for our nation. If push comes to shove and the weather does not cooperate with us, simply move your family celebration indoors and as long as you are surrounded by loved ones, it will still be a 4th of July to remember!
Happy Independence Day!by
