Henry County Prepared for Spectacular July 4th

Henry County Prepared for Spectacular July 4th

Celebrate the anniversary of America’s independence at Henry County Parks and Recreation’s Georgia Independence Day Festival, to be held on July 3 and July 4 at Nash Farm Park in Hampton. Affordable family fun is right in your own backyard and the two-day event will offer something for everyone, with a variety of activities beginning Saturday at 3:00 p.m.

This year’s celebration will feature Henry County’s largest fireworks display as the grand finale on both evenings, as well as strolling actors in period costumes, shopping, cannons, a blacksmith program, a colonial chair making demonstration and Native American Indian program and crafts. Families can join the wagon parade around the park on both nights, paying a special tribute to all the soldiers throughout the United States’ history, from the Revolution to the current war in Iraq.

There will be plenty for the children to do with age-appropriate activities throughout the weekend, including a children’s tea party, a spider jump, a rock wall, pony rides, face painting and inflatables. The Radio Disney Road Crew will rock out with the latest trendy tunes for the kids on Saturday, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Entertainment includes the Atlanta Baroque Dancers and colonial music and dancing. Local band, the Original Covers Band, will perform on Saturday, before and after the fireworks. On Sunday, the Dulcet Dames will showcase their amazing harmonizing skills while singing patriotic songs from the World War II era and the Mackie Creek Band will entertain the crowd on Sunday evening.

This Fourth of July celebration is being co-hosted by Henry County Parks and Recreation and Signature Broadcasting Network (SBN).  The local access cable channel generously contributed more than $25,000, becoming the event’s title sponsor, to ensure that the festival happens at no cost to taxpayers.

“Having a title sponsor is the way to do this,” explained District 4 Commissioner Reid Bowman during the called meeting to discuss the financing of the event.  “This won’t be on the backs of taxpayers at all.  This is a good thing for Henry County.”

Henry County Parks & Recreation also appreciates these generous sponsors for helping to make this event possible: the Henry County Chamber of Commerce, Wade Insurance & Associates, Lane Insurance & Associates, Peachtree Insurance Group, Inc., Comfort Zone Portables, TheShopper.net, the City of Hampton and the City of McDonough.

Admission is $5.00, with children age five and under admitted free. Nash Farm Park is located at 4361 Jonesboro Road in Hampton. For more information call 770.288.7300 or visit www.hcprd.org.
