Fourth of July in Atlanta, Georgia
Independence Day is important day each year that communities come together to celebrate when the original 13 colonies broke away from Great Britain to become an independent country. The American Revolution was a hard-fought battle and ultimately led to the freedoms we enjoy today.
Attending a fireworks display is fairly easy if you’re anywhere in Atlanta. Bright fireworks light up the sky over SunTrust Park and Centennial Olympic Park every Fourth of July. Look to the skies once it gets dark and you might see an incredible display unlike any other in the United States of America. There’s a whole day before the fireworks go off, so grab some food and enjoy the fun festivities as Centennial Olympic Park or attend a baseball game at SunTrust Park.
