Everybody is invited to join in the fun as the City of Jackson lights up the sky celebrating America’s birthday on July 4th! Grab your blanket or lawn chairs and be awed by this star spangled spectacle of entertainment, food, games and the grande finale – the fireworks!
The evening takes place at the Butts County Recreation Department and gates open at 5:00 p.m. The entry fee is $5.00 per car and all proceeds go toward purchase of next year’s fireworks.
Rock to 50’s & 60’s music performed by Cruise Control and lead singer Teddy Sauls, entertaining from the grand stand and broadcast live over WJGA Radio, 92.1 FM. Youngsters can play to their hearts content in the Bounce Houses and cool off with rides down the Slip n Slide and all ages will enjoy competing in the Water Melon Eating Contest. And for those looking for a little art and glamor, there will be face fainting and hair coloring! Food will be available in the concession stand throughout the evening.
The grand finale will be a fireworks show rivaling any other in the state! City employees and volunteers will be detonating hundreds of fireworks in varying sizes and shapes creating a spectacle in the sky worthy of this honorable holiday! The fireworks show will start at first dark.
