RINGGOLD, Georgia (WDEF) – While several communities are giving fireworks shows and 4th of July celebrations a pass this year, some announced today they WILL be holding them.
The Catoosa Fireworks & Fun Festival is scheduled for Saturday, July 4 at the Colonnade at Benton Place.
Music, food and kids’ activities will go on from 4 PM until the fireworks show at 9:30.
“After events in recent months that have transformed our lives, we invite our neighbors to enjoy a day when we can come together and celebrate the values that make Catoosa County strong,” said Catoosa County Commission Chairman Steven M. Henry.
“The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of our community’s treasured 1890’s Days in Ringgold this year, so our July 4th festival is a way to celebrate family, fellowship, patriotism and quality of life.”
