One of the most popular events at Smith Mountain Lake is the celebration of Independence Day. In addition to relaxing by the bonfire or feasting on your favorite meals at the family cookout, a fireworks display is on everyone’s must-see list of local events.
If you’re ready to start celebrating early, make plans to attend the Independence Day celebration at Downtown Moneta on Saturday, June 30th starting at 5:30pm. This event features live music from The WORX, an adult beverage garden, and plenty of fun activities suitable for the entire family. Admission is $10 and children under 10 are free.
Celebrating its 35th year, the 4th of July Independence Festival in Rocky Mount offers food, games, and one of the most extensive fireworks displays in the area. Located at Franklin County High School, this event is scheduled for Tuesday, July 3rd beginning at 5pm.
If you’re anxious to see fireworks reflected over the waters of Smith Mountain Lake, then make plans to attend the July 4th celebration at Parkway Marina on Wednesday, July 4th. Live entertainment will be provided by The WORX. All proceeds benefit Saunders Volunteer Fire Company.
