5. Fourth of July Fireworks and Festivities
We have awesome Fourth of July Festivities in Georgia's Blue Ridge and the Copper Basin of McCaysville, Copperhill and Ducktown, Tenn.
Miner's Homecoming Weekend in Ducktown, Tenn. Music and festivities begin on Friday with an old fashioned Gospel Concert. On Saturday, join the patriotic walking parade on Main Street and many more activities. Fireworks will begin at dark.
Copper Basin Fireworks in McCaysville/Copperhill continue a long standing Copper Basin tradition of celebrating our nation's independence with a fireworks display from the top of "Tater Hill" in McCaysville a half an hour past sunset (approximately 9:30 p.m.). The fireworks can be seen from almost all areas of town. For an extra special experience you can book the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway to the fireworks in McCaysville, (book super early, it sells out far in advance).
Annual Old Timers Parade - Always on July 4th. Come on down to historic downtown Blue Ridge. The Annual Fourth of July Parade begins at 10:00 a.m. by the Blue Ridge City Park.
Lake Blue Ridge Fireworks - Always on July 4th. Experience fireworks over the scenic mountain and lake setting of Lake Blue Ridge for a spectacular display of nature and Fourth of July Festivities! Held on Lake Blue Ridge near the dam, the fireworks begin at dusk, they can be viewed from Lake Blue Ridge Marina, Lake Blue Ridge Dam, Morganton Point Recreation Area and for the best view, from a boat on Lake Blue Ridge.
