Waynesboro’s annual Independence Day Celebration will be held this year on Saturday, July 2nd at the Waynesboro City Park. The Celebration just seems to be getting better and better every year! Following a couple years’ uncertainty about the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems that folks are once again ready to come together and celebrate the birth of our nation with great music, all varieties of food and vendors, and a spectactular fireworks display to wrap things up.
Gates will open at the Waynesboro City Park at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 2nd. Vendors will be set up all around the park, offering all kinds of food and other goodies. The Waynesboro City Pool and Water Park will be open from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. for everyone to swim, slide, and be able to cool off on what usually proves to be a warm and sunny day.
The music at Stage 64 will begin at 2:00 p.m. with a special guest, Wayne County’s very own singer and songwriter extraordinaire, Ben Daniel. Ben has long made a name for himself on local stages as well as the Nashville music scene as a talented songwriter and performer.
From 3:30 until 5:00 p.m., another local band, Southern Fire, will bring their old-style country fare to the audience, mingled in with a taste of outlaw country and maybe even a touch of classic rock…something for everyone!
Another band from our part of the country, Charlies River, will holt the stage from 5:30 until 7:00 p.m.
Charlies River is a unique blend of country music that combines impressive vocal and instrumental skills into original music.
Headlining the show and performing from 7:30 until 9:00 p.m. will be William Michael Morgan. Morgan has only just arrived in his mid-twenties, but he is already beginning to make his mark on the Nashville sound. With a love of country music deeper than The Big River itself, the Mississippi native is the very definition of an old soul. His pristine Southern vocal, timeless sound and honest lyric represents a new generation of hit makers in Music City; a modern day descendant of artists like Randy Travis, Alan Jackson and George Strait.
The annual fireworks extravaganza is set to begin at 9:00 p.m. The display in Waynesboro has come to be known as one of the best Independence Day fireworks displays in the entire state of Tennessee. It will certainly be a fitting conclusion to an evening of food, music, and fun!
Mark your calendars and bring your lawn chairs to a great celebration of our country’s independence on July 3rd!
