Kick off your Independence Day celebration Friday July 3 in Nocross by volunteering to set up the recycle containers at the new Lillian Webb Park at the top of the hill at Jones St. and throughout downtown for the day long celebrations. Retrieve recycle containers about 10 PM just after the fireworks. The official ribbon cutting ceremony at Lillian Webb Park is at the Gateway Plaza at 11:30 AM and city festivities start at 2 PM including live music, street artists and vendors, games and rides for the kids, plus an evening concert by our own Skin Alley Kats at the new Lillian Webb Park, and of course a grand fireworks finale.
The City of Duluth, even after cutting back on budget has still moved forward with their annual celebration. Duluth is known for our patriotism and it is so important to celebrate and thank those who fought for the freedoms we enjoy. Friday, July 3rd, at Scott Hudgens Park off Peachtree Industrial Blvd. in the River Green Office Park Duluth offers up an evening of music, fun, inflatables, rides, food and of course a fabulous fireworks display. Gates will open at 4:00 pm and entertainment will begin at 6:00 pm. Julie Hall will kick things off with the National Anthem, then The Woody’s (Fleetwood Mac type band) will take the stage, and to wrap things up the Army Ground Forces Band, Loose Cannons, will have you on your feet. The fireworks will begin around 9:30 pm. Admission is FREE but donations will be graciously accepted. There will be a nominal charge for the inflatables and rides.
This year, Lawrenceville’s 5th Annual Prelude to the 4th will set sail for great entertainment on the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse lawn (185 Crogan St.) as Aurora Theatre presents a concert version of Anything Goes, a classic Broadway farce wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s magical scores.
In a effort to continue Prelude to the 4th as Lawrenceville’s (and even Gwinnett’s) own mini-Chastain Park, attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and visit one of the restaurants on the downtown square for catering or take-out packages. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. with lawn seating available starting at 5:30 p.m. Tables for six are available for rental for only 150 dollars by contacting the LTTA office at 678-226-2639.
