Fireworks and July 4th Fun in the 9 Lakes
There is no shortage of fun events during the July 4th week in the 9 Lakes. Celebrate the holiday by joining in on one of the many events being held across the region. Picnics, parades, live music concerts, and of course, fireworks are all fun ways to make lasting memories with your family and friends.
The festivities begin on the weekend of June 28. Love beautiful places? The annual Oakes Daylily Festival is a tapestry of six acres of blooming daylillies. New for 2019 is a wine garden featuring local vineyards. Sip and stroll. Just down river on Loudoun Lake, Rockin the Docks is an all day celebration of summer lake fun and fireworks.
On July 4, step back in time for the annual Anvil Shoot at the Museum of Appalachia in Clinton. In the tradition of the original pioneers, Independence Day is celebrated by launching a gunpowder-filled anvil high into the sky saluting the holiday with a large boom.
Nearby on Watts Bar Lake in Kingston, family fun is waiting at the Annual July 4th Smokin the Water celebration. Enjoy the BBQ contest, parade, ice cold watermelon, and one of the largest fireworks displays in the Southeast.
There is no shortage of fireworks across the region and choosing where to view is only half the fun. Spend July 3, boating and swimming, and then float up to see the fireworks display from your boat at Bubba Brews on Norris Lake. On July 4th, plan an evening at Cherokee Park on Cherokee Lake for all your rowdy friends. On tap is an evening of Hank Williams Jr tribute music followed by fireworks.
