The Fourth of July in Lawrenceburg

What better way to celebrate summer than the Fourth of July. Filled with family, friends, good food and lots of fun, this holiday has become more than just a birthday of our nation but a day of community pride.

Each year in Lawrenceburg, the Fourth of July begins with a parade down Main Street. Nothing defines small town America than a parade down the center of town with people gathering together along the sides of the street to see all the hard work others have done to create this parade. It is truly a vision of the spirit of our great nation.

After the parade, there will be a gathering at the Green to honor all the men and women who fought to keep our country safe and free. These brave people put their lives at risk and many have died for the freedom we enjoy each day. They are true HEROS. As the day continues, a local band will play while people will enjoy time on the Green: eating, playing games, and spending time with friends and neighbors.

Lawrenceburg, like many towns across America, will finish this great day with an amazing display of fireworks that brings awe to so many. Each year as I watch the fireworks, memories of when I was a child return. Watching with anticipation and excitement, I would look out at the night sky light up in brilliant colors and quickly cover my ears before the loud boom would arrive. What great fun at any age.

Today is only July 1st but the sound of the fourth has already begun to be heard in our neighborhoods: a reminder of the exciting day that is coming very soon. Below is a list of the times and events. See you all there.
