The Franklin Chamber of Commerce is finalizing plans for the largest annual Independence Day celebration in Western North Carolina. The 4th of July Fireworks & Fun Day will be held at the Macon County Veterans Memorial Recreation Park just south of Franklin off U.S. 441 on Monday, July 4. Activities will begin in the park at 3 p.m. and conclude at dark with the largest fireworks display in the area.
“We always work hard to make this a very special day for those who attend,” said Cindy Cavender, Special Events Coordinator for the Chamber. “The crowds can expect a spectacular day of fun and excitement for the entire family. While the day will not begin until 3 pm there will still be lots to do including the live entertainment, kid’s inflatable area, a horseshoe tournament, a cornhole tournament along with the famous Plunger Toss.”
