Fireworks over Coosa River in Gadsden

Residents in Calhoun and Etowah County are invited to participate in some family-fun activities that will be taking place on Independence Day. The Freedom Festival will be held at Oxford Lake Park and will feature the Atlanta Pops Orchestra Ensemble. This concert is free for everyone to attend. The concert will begin at 7:30pm followed by a fireworks show starting at 9pm.

In Etowah County, the Gadsden-Etowah Patriots Association invites everyone out to watch the fireworks over the Coosa River. The best viewing locations are on either side of the river between City Hall and the newly renovated Moragne Park. Other viewing locations are Mort Glosser Amphitheater and the Coosa Landing parking lot. You are strongly encouraged to arrive early to get a good parking spot.

And for everyone’s ensured safety, much of Riverwalk at the Coosa Landing will be closed near the fireworks launching site. For more information on the fireworks show, visit
