Williamson County has no shortage of fun planned for the July 4 holiday.
From Brentwood to Spring Hill, Nolensville to Fairview, and two events planned in Franklin, opportunities to see fireworks and celebrate America’s birthday are plentiful.
Here are some of the festivities planned, and all have free admission:
Brentwood’s 34th annual Red, White and Boom in Brentwood at the Eddy Arnold Amphitheater in Crockett Park will run from 5-10 p.m. on July 4. The Smoking Section will return as the evening’s live music, and food trucks will begin serving food at 5 p.m., with music starting at 7 p.m. and fireworks at 9 p.m.
If there is lightning, strong wind or continuous rain between 7-9 p.m., the fireworks, and possibly the entire event, will be canceled or postponed. Text “Fourth” to 888-777 to receive event-specific alerts about traffic, weather or other safety information.
The 11th annual Fairview July 3rd Celebration will be held at Fairview City Hall starting at 2 p.m., with the large fireworks show at 9 p.m.
