Happy 4th of July
If you’re in town and still looking for something to do in Nashville on the Fourth, we’ve got some ideas:
Nashville’s annual Music City Hot Chicken Festival comes back to East Park for all the foodies out there. This year, the festival is expected to bring a new layout, more activities, and (wait for it) more chicken. The festival is still looking for volunteers. For those of you that can’t get enough hot chicken, email your availability here: email@example.com.
Start your holiday off on the right foot with a run for a good cause! Nashville will host its annual Music City July 4th 5K/10K in support of The Salvation Army in Public Square Park. You can register to run here: https://endurancecui.active.com/event-reg/select-race?e=6211953.
Down at Riverfront Park, you’ll be able to listen to live music all day long leading up to the fireworks show. “Hey Girl” country singer Billy Currington will take the stage this Independence Day, in addition to Ashley Monroe, Striking Matches, and our one and only Nashville Symphony. If by chance you want a change of tune, look no further than Broadway—the honky tonks are always filled with live performances and excitement!
There’s no better way to celebrate July 4th than with fireworks.This year, Music City plans to put on its longest fireworks show yet—a full 27-minute masterpiece at Riverfront Park, accompanied live by the Nashville Symphony. The show starts at 9:30pm.
