The Franklin Chamber of Commerce is finalizing plans for the largest annual Independence Day celebration in Western North Carolina. The 4th of July Fireworks in the Park will be held at the Macon County Veterans Memorial Recreation Park just south of Franklin off U.S. 441 on Thursday, 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. “Our plans are complete and the crowds can expect a spectacular day of fun and excitement for the entire family. While the day will not begin until 3 p.m. there will still be lots to do including live entertainment, bungee jump, a horseshoe tournament, a cornhole tournament, the famous Plunger Toss and new this year, the blind golf cart obstacle course. A special added attraction this year will be a free kid’s inflatable area sponsored by Biltmore Baptist Church. In addition to the inflatables, Biltmore Baptist Church is the sponsor of this year’s fireworks display.”
