It has been two years since the Pepsi Independence Day Fireworks Celebration was held at Freedom Hall in Johnson City, Tenn. Everyone is getting back to normal, and folks in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia are ready to get that party started again.
This is one of the largest fireworks displays in the area, and is enjoyed by thousands of people every year. With the two-year absence caused by the pandemic, It is definitely time for the music, food, fun and Fireworks to begin.
The Fireworks display will start at 9:55 p.m., but the activities start at 5 p.m. In addition to live music from country artists Restless Road, Tim Dugger and Adam Doleac, the afternoon and evening will include games for children, craft and food vendors, a Tribute to Gold Star families and disabled veterans, and on-site sign-up for give-aways.
Here’s the full schedule for July 3:
5 p.m.: Food service begins, craft booths open, children’s games start
5-7 p.m.: On-site registration for giveaways
6-6:40 p.m.: Music by Restless Road
