The City of Tullahoma is celebrating America’s independence this year with a free family festival. The City is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for vendors and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Gates open at 3:00 pm on Saturday, July 3rd. Frazier-McEwen Park and Grider Stadium will be filled with free music, games, food trucks, kids zone, and of course, fireworks that starting at 9:00 pm.
Leading up to the fireworks show, the music features two bands: Vinyl Radio, seventies and eighties music; and Sixwire. If you’ve been to a Nashville Predators game, you may have enjoyed this band. They met while touring with Lee Greenwood and have gone on to successful careers with other artists and their own band. Most recently they performed for during the NFL Draft in 2019.
This year we are excited to announce that Vanderbilt Tullahoma Harton Hospital is our newest title sponsor along with L&H Distributing and Cherokee Distributing. There are still sponsorship opportunities available, and if an organization would like to have a presence at the celebration and be a sponsor, please contact Mayor Ray Knowis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Details are available at https://www.tullahomatn.gov/fireworks/. The sponsorship deadline is June 14.
“There are so many fun activities planned for this event that we are expecting to draw thousands of people from the surrounding communities. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen want to invite everyone in our neighboring communities to come to the park and celebrate our independence,” said Mayor Ray Knowis.
The fireworks will be presented by a national pyrotechnics company that has presented shows around the world, including in Nashville, the Washington Mall and New York City. This will be the largest fireworks show in the area. And this year there will be more close-up fireworks and larger mortars added to the show. “Be sure to find a spot on the baseball field,” said Interim Director of Parks and Recreation, JP Kraft. “Visitors will have the best experience when they enjoy the show from inside Grider Stadium.”
Food vendor space is available and applications are on-line at https://www.tullahomatn.gov/fireworks/. This is a Regional Independence day event, and the Tullahoma Board of Mayor and Aldermen want to invite the region to experience a great day of fun and an evening of music and amazing fireworks.
