Plans are shaping up for a large Independence Day Celebration on July 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Historical Society Museum on West Vertia St.
The planned activities for this fun-filled celebration of the country’s independence include a classic car parade, watermelon cutting on the grounds, a petting zoo, water works, snow cones, a bouncy house and face painting, and it is all free!
VFW and American Legion will sell hot dogs, chips and drink for a nominal price. Patriotic music will start the menu of musical fare.
CCHS will celebrate the 100-year-old building and rededicate it as the History Museum. All students who graduated from Metter High School in this two-story building and their families will be honored during the rededication ceremony.
Georgia Grown vendors with local produce and homemade items will be present, as this will be a First Saturday Event at the History Museum.
Any churches, vendors or food trucks who wish to participate during this celebration can contact Amber Carroll at 912-531-5515 or Steve Waller at 912-314-1536.
Booth spaces are 10x10 and start at $25 each.
