The holiday where we celebrate our nation's independence is later this week and you know what that means - a party will be happening in downtown Greenville!
Every year, Greenville hosts the Red, White and Blue Festival to celebrate the 4th of July. This year's festival will take place this Thursday, July 4 from 5-10:30pm in downtown Greenville. The evening includes live music on two separate stages. Enjoy the music from The Buchanan Boys and Bryson Jennings at the Pepsi Stage and the 246th Army Band at the TD Stage located in the Peace Center Amphitheatre. Festivities also include the Zaxby's Kidz Zone as well as food from popular local area restaurants and vendors. And, to top it off, the night ends with the largest fireworks display in the state!
Activities will take place along Broad Street from Laurens Street to Falls Street and Falls Park. Be sure to bring the whole family and enjoy some food, fun and fireworks!
If you prefer to catch a baseball game instead of partaking in the festival activities, you can catch the Greenville Drive playing the Savannah Sand Gnats at 7:05pm on the 4th. For an additional fireworks show, catch the game the following evening where the night will be capped off with their usual Friday night fireworks display.
For those that plan to fire up the grill on the 4th, we have some great items to make your 4th of July barbecue extra special. Stop by one of our two retail boutiques and check out our selection of Dean & Deluca barbecue sauces and rubs and choose from a variety of casual serving pieces and dinnerware items.
God Bless the USA, those who protect us each and every day, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We are grateful.
