Fireworks - The world renowned Pyro Shows, Inc., a fireworks production company headquartered in LaFollette, Tennessee, will again provide the event’s patriotic firepower. The spectacular fireworks show will be choreographed to ever popular music ranging from patriotic to pop hits.
Entertainment - In addition to the dazzling display of explosives, an entertainment stage will be located in the Duck Pond parking lot. Musical performances by Nuthin’ Fancy featuring Garrett Holloway, will begin at 6:00 p.m. Smooth Groove takes the stage at 8:00 p.m. breaking for the 20-minute fireworks spectacle at approximately 9:40 p.m. Entertainers will return to the stage at the end of the pyrotechnic presentation to treat event goers to music and “dancing in the street”. Food vendors will operate on the same schedule, stopping only for the 20-minute fireworks display. Plan to stay and enjoy more music, food and fun!
Children's Activities - A children’s area will be located between the Duck Pond and Springbrook Pool. Activities will include a climbing wall, bounce house, inflatable slide, obstacle course, and face painting by Faces Gone Wild and Scott Axley. Military displays will be set up in the same area.
Parking - Expanded parking will be available in the field at the corner of Springbrook Road and Edison Street and in the parking lots at the newly constructed Alcoa High School.
