Wouldn’t it be great to walk to fireworks from your house? Walkability is hot right now, and the truth is that it is so incredibly hot in Atlanta that you don’t want to walk far– there is a reason that natives call it HOTlanta! Well, you are in luck! Traton Homes has a number of communities in Cobb County that are walkable to community July 4th celebrations. So, pack your picnic basket (mmmm. we are thinking burgers, corn on the cob, watermelon, deviled eggs and banana pudding), pick up a few sparklers, grab a blanket and enjoy a fun night as we celebrate our nation’s independence.
Here is our roundup of Acworth, Marietta and Kennesaw events that are near several of our popular communities.
Kennesaw Salute to America
The City of Kennesaw is celebrating Independence day on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 from 6 – 10 p.m. at Depot Park. Our homeowners at The Village of Fuller’s Chase can walk to this event! The Salute to America Concert & Fireworks includes two stages of free live music including a performance by Band X – Atlanta Party Band. Fireworks are visible from Depot Park and along Main Street and provide a spectacular visual finale to the evening at 9:30 p.m. In addition to street vendor and sponsor booths, additional attractions will include free and pay-to-play inflatable amusements and mechanical rides.
Tables by Depot Stage can be reserved on a first-come basis, and other seating is general admission, so pack a blanket or a comfortable low-backed chair.
