Nothing says Independence Day quite like fireworks. Henry County offers not one, but three chances to get a firework fix. Each event offers something different. Find one that fits your family or make it a fireworks pilgrimage and see them all.
Papa John’s Fireworks Extravaganza – July 1
Kick off the holiday weekend in a grand fashion at the Papa John’s Pizza Fireworks Extravaganza on July 1 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Families can enjoy an affordable fireworks show AND experience Friday Night Drags, the fastest, most popular street-style drag racing in the South.
Admission: $8 for adults; Kids 5 & under Free
3rd of July Celebration – July 3
The 3rd of July Celebration combines the four “F’s” of July 4th – food, family, fun and fireworks. Get to Richard Craig Park early to stake your claim to a prime tailgate location and let the kids play on the inflatables. Enjoy live music, visit, and then sit back and enjoy the fireworks show as the sun goes down.
4th of July Fireworks Hike – July 4
For those who enjoy the beauty of fireworks, but would prefer to appreciate them at a distance, Panola Mountain State Park offers a more intimate option. Hike to the top of Panola Mountain for a panoramic view of Stone Mountain and Atlanta’s firework displays. The fireworks aren’t even the best part! A campfire and s’mores are your reward for the roundtrip hike! There are only 50 spots on this unique hike so book early.
Admission: $15/person and a $5 parking fee.
Fireworks aren’t the only way to celebrate the 4th. Check the calendar of events for a complete list of other great Henry County activities for the holiday weekend.
