Happy Fourth of July from East Cobb SNOBS! We hope you are enjoying a fun-filled and safe weekend with your family, grilling and keeping cool from the Metro Atlanta heat. We have put together a few things you can do locally this weekend, including the best places to see fireworks:

Marietta, Georgia

Indian Hills – Every year these fireworks are an East Cobb fave. Make sure you bring your blanket and sit on the course with a view of the clubhouse. The show begins at dusk on the 4th.
Marietta Square – There’s something for everyone at the Square this weekend, including the Marietta Freedom Parade at 10am, an arts and crafts festival, food, a kid’s zone and fireworks at 9:30pm. There will also be a bell ringing ceremony and live music all day. Insider tip: park at the Roswell Street Baptist Church a mile or so outside the square for good views and low volume 4th of July entertainment.

Metro Atlanta
Acworth Beach – If you want to enjoy fireworks in your canoe, visit Acworth for a great view, live music and a stunning fireworks show. Be sure to arrive at Cauble Park early, because parking is limited. Vendors will open at noon, music at 4pm and fireworks at 9:30pm.
Kennesaw’s Salute to America – You can fit in two fireworks shows if you visit downtown Kennesaw on July 3rd for their celebration. They also have live music starting 6pm, activities for kids and fireworks at 9:30pm on Sunday.

Roswell – Head over to Sweet Apple Elementary for a fireworks display hosted by the Roswell Rotarians. The show begins at dark.
Home – Although your neighbors my not love it… this year, it is legal to buy fireworks such as bottle rockets, roman candles and sparklers in the state of Georgia. There are still laws prohibiting them in some cities, so be sure to check your local government for the rules if you want to try your own pyrotechnics this year. (And be safe!)
Wherever you celebrate Independence Day, we at East Cobb SNOBS wish you a happy 4th of July!
