Independence Day Celebration July 3 at Georgia Museum of Agriculture
A spectacular fireworks display, free watermelon, and sensational sounds from the top 4-H vocalists in Georgia will highlight the annual Independence Day Celebration on July 3 at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
Gates will open for fireworks and evening activities at 6 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs to set up on the Opry Shelter Lawn to hear live music from the very talented 4-H Clovers & Company beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Clovers & Company includes talented singers, dancers, and instrumentalists from across the state. Established in 1981, the performance group celebrates its 33rd anniversary this year. Performing arts is one of the most popular projects in the Georgia 4-H program, and the group was created to provide 4-H members with an opportunity to share their talents with others. Over 160 members from Georgia 4-H clubs audition during the annual statewide tryouts for positions in the show cast.
Tasty concessions including pizza, sausage and peppers, funnel cakes, snow cones, and cotton candy will be available for purchase. Visitors will also enjoy free watermelon slices while they last. Guests can also test their rock climbing skills on Rockin’ Roland’s Rock Climbing Wall, and children can participate in traditional games led by Museum staff members.
The cost for the Independence Day celebration is $10 per car. Guests with military ID cards will be admitted at no charge. Participants are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs, and coolers. Alcohol and pets are not permitted. The Museum will also be open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. on July 3 at the regular admission cost.
