Tallahassee Will Celebrate America This 4th Of July
I love it when the 4th of July (Independence Day) falls on a weekend as it usually means we give it more attention than when it "disrupts" a busy weekday schedule.
This year, Independence Day lands on a Saturday, and Tallahassee's theme of "Celebrate America" will be the theme promoted for our annual celebration of Independence Day.
This is not merely a fireworks display, it is an entire evening of music and events (and fireworks!).
Celebrate America Schedule
According to the City of Tallahassee website, the celebration begins at Tom Brown Park at 5:30 p.m. on July 4th, and will include "food vendors, arts/crafts, exhibitors and more." The entertainment schedule includes:
