Because the official Independence Day falls Wednesday, July 4, this year, many Barrow County residents will be celebrating the weekend prior.
The city of Auburn plans to commemorate our nation’s independence with a two-day event aptly titled the Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, June 30, and Sunday, July 1.
The family-friendly event boasts fun, food, games, music, vendors, roving entertainment, a carnival and of course fireworks. This year’s event event debuts “The Chainsaw Guy” — a must-see wood carver who uses his chainsaw to create original works of art. The singing competition will be a major part of the entertainment lineup over both days — don’t forget, the deadline to register to compete is June 22. A street dance is slated to take place at 9 p.m. Saturday, June 30, and the entire weekend ends with a bang when fireworks light up the night sky.
The celebration will be held from 5 to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 30, and from noon until fireworks conclude Sunday, July.
