Fourth of July, the holiday celebrating our country’s independence from England is a day filled with patriotic concerts, community picnics, family gatherings and fireworks. This tradition goes back to July 4, 1776, the day that the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. The 4th of July became an official federal holiday in 1870. There are many events in the Savannah area to celebrate our nation’s 237th birthday from visiting a state park to watching fireworks.
The holiday fun kicks off on July 3rd with the fireworks on Tybee Island. The fireworks will start after 9pm and can be viewed from any point on the eastern side of the island including the beach or the Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion. For the history buffs, Fort McAllister will be having Civil War era re-enactors, cannon and musket firings and old-fashioned family fun from 9am to 4pm on July 4th.
Savannah will be celebrating Independence Day in grand style with Fireworks on the River as part of the 4th of July on the Riverfront Festival. The fireworks will be at 9:30pm. There will be 3 days of activities along River Street including a Burger Battle on Friday, July 5th from 11am to 7pm and a Cornhole Tournament all day on Saturday, July 6th.
