4th of July Fireworks & Celebrations for 2018

There’s no shortage of fireworks displays and celebrations to see around the Tennessee and Sequatchie Valleys over the next few days, and with the 4th being on a Wednesday for 2018, some have shifted to weekend dates or other dates to accomodate those still keeping a work schedule. Most of the shows in our area start after dusk with no specific start time; however, some do have a set time.

Keep in mind that the weather also plays a big part in the scheduling, and rain could impact the show’s start time or altogether. Stay up-to-date with your latest forecast from MarionCountyMessenger.com and also watch the various Facebook pages of cities/towns and organizations for updates on times and dates in the event of a rain-out. Here’s the list we’ve compiled from those who’ve submitted information to us:
