We thought it would be nice to give folks a couple ideas of what is going on south of Atlanta each weekend. There are plenty of options for fireworks and other family fun this 4th of July weekend. I hope you all get out and have a great time in the sunshine!
Nash Farms Fireworks (Henry County) — Very family friendly. Activities for the kids include pony rides, rock wall, and inflatable jumpers. Then, fireworks when it gets dark!
Insider tip: Even if you only want to head to Nash Farm for the fireworks, consider making a day of it and go earlier in the day. Last year I was trying to get to the fireworks and the traffic was HORRIBLE. I don’t know I would have gotten into the park by the time the fireworks started. As it was, we turned around and followed the crowd parked in front of the Olive Garden on Jonesboro Rd. We were able to watch the fireworks in the distance (maybe from Lake Spivey?). It was quieter and still transfixed my 2 year old. If you are set on the park just load up with water, sunscreen and go earlier and enjoy the festivities!(Maggie)
Peachtree City Festivities (Fayette County)– Festivities in Peachtree City include a parade @9:00am and fireworks over lake Peachtree later in the evening. Folks line up on the grassy areas along Hwy 54. It is recommended that you get there long before dark to find a parking spot. Last year my husband and I headed towards Peachtree City to find some dinner and enjoy the fireworks. We ended up eating at a restaurant not far from the 54/74 intersection and then found a spot in a parking lot facing the fireworks and watched them from the car. It worked for us, but might not have been so fun for families with active little ones. (Rachel)
Stone Mountain (East of Atlanta)– The festivities at Stone Mountain are a little off the beaten path for those of us in the southern suburbs, but the show will not disappoint. At $10 per vehicle it is a very affordable option as well.by
