Area To Celebrate Independence Day
Freedom will ring near and far as we approach July 4th, as the local area celebrates Independence Day with music and fireworks throughout the region.
The City of Vidalia will celebrate the holiday with a large event at the Ronnie A. Dixon Park, located behind City Hall. Gates for the event will open at 5:30 p.m., and the celebration will last throughout the night. Admission is $5, but all children ages 5 and under are free.
Several bands will fill the park with music, as the Something for the Soul Band takes the stage at 6 p.m., and the 7 Bridges: The Ultimate Eagles Experience Band goes on at 7:30 p.m. Kids’ activities will begin prior to fireworks, which begin at dark, so the City encourages all children to come early.
Attendees are welcome to bring chairs, but no coolers or pets are permitted. Food, drink, beer, and wine vendors will be available within the park. For more information, call the Vidalia Convention & Visitors Bureau at 912-538-8687.
Wheeler and Montgomery Counties celebrated Independence Day prior to July 4th, as both counties held fireworks events on June 25 and 26. The Alamo Fire Department held its 15th Annual Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, June 25, and the Tabernacle Baptist Church had its Summer Family Picnic and Fireworks on Sunday, June 26.
