Celebrate July 4th Twice! Fireworks, Pancakes and Games

The July 4th Holiday will be great camping fun at our KOA campground.

We are planning a “FREE Pancakes” breakfast, kids games, and we are offering extended checkout on July 4th and 5th so you can enjoy an extra day resting around our pool or exploring the local area.

The best part is because of our unique location you can actually celebrate the 4th twice! Thanks to St. Marys GA deciding to host their festival on July 3rd you can stay with us and enjoy St. Mary’s festival & Fireworks on the 3rd and then have a blast at the Fernandina festival on the 4th! All within less than 20 miles!

July 4th

St. Mary’s GA: This year the Independence Day Celebration in St Marys is going to be held on July 3, 2010, instead of Sunday.

4th of July Parade

This is the 42nd Independence Day Celebration, with “It’s a Family Affair” being the theme for 2010. The parade starts at 10:00 a.m.

4th of July Race
As usual, there is a 1,5K – 5K – 10K race on the Fourth of July morning. Pre-registration is suggested. To apply, click here.

4th of July Festival & Fireworks
More than 100 vendors participate as well as incredible musical entertainment and local fun including a Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest and a Watermelon Eating Contest for all ages. Children’s rides and activities are offered throughout the festival.

The highlight of the festival is of course the fantastic fireworks display at the waterfront.

For the best seats in the house to watch the stunning fireworks display over the St. Marys River the St. Marys Kiwanis are once again inviting the public to come aboard the Cumberland Queen or Cumberland Princess. According to St. Marys Kiwanis president Allen Rassi, “these will definitely be the best ringside seats for viewing the spectacular fireworks display.” Rassi says that this year’s fireworks production will match most elaborate fireworks display in the history of the festival with 25 minutes of continuous fireworks.
River cruise tickets are available for $20 at the St. Marys Welcome Center and the Tribune & Georgian office in Downtown St. Marys, and at the Kingsland Welcome Center.  The cruise departs the dock at 7 p.m. and returns following the fireworks display. For more information, call 912-467-2119 or visit www.smkiwanis.com.
