CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE DAY
Independence Day, or the Fourth of July, is a busy time for me and my family, and a joyous time for us as a country. It was on this day in 1776 that the Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 members of the second Continental Congress, and the United States declared its independence from Great Britain. Many Americans celebrate this day by shooting fireworks, attending patriotic-themed parades, going to fairs, sporting events, or family reunions. Georgia is no different, and uses its many attractions to honor this special day.
McDonough is having their 3rd of July Celebration at Richard Craig Park this year. There will be professional fireworks, music, activities for the kids, and food. This event begins at 4 p.m. Follow the link above for more information!
Hampton is having a 4th of July Parade on East Main Street. There you’ll find the whole community enjoying the street vendors, food, and music.
As you enjoy all of the festivities, remember to reflect upon our nation’s independence, and how truly blessed we are to have freedom. I wish you and your family a very happy 4th of July!
