If you can't find something to do in Atlanta for the Fourth of July you obviously aren't trying. This city energetically celebrates Independence and does it with Atlanta's signature sense of theater! Here are several of the Independence Day celebrations happening in and around Atlanta!
Celebration at Centennial Olympic Park
July 4, 2016
Located between Baker Street and Techwood Drive is the site of Atlanta's Independence Day celebration. Atlanta's 'really big' Fireworks Display choreographed to a Musical Score is the highlight of the night. Thousands of people turn out, but you can also view the fireworks from a variety of `less crowded' spots nearby. Festivities begin at 6 PM
Fantastic Fourth Celebration at Stone Mountain
July 4-6, 2016
There have got to be few sights as visually awesome as fireworks exploding over Atlanta's Stone Mountain. Picture it - rising 400 feet into the blackened evening sky, the towering slab of granite suddenly, spectacularly illuminated by a pinwheeling kaleidoscope of color, just as your body vibrates from the pounding thunder of thousands of explosions and your ears ring with the delightful noise. Now THAT'S a fireworks display!
The show is free with park admission, so take the whole family for a full day's fun at one of America's premier state parks, and, as it gets dark, be treated to a fantastic Lasershow. Then watch out, as the fireworks explode above you!
