The Fourth of July is almost here! Have you made your plans yet? Chapel Hill was named as one of America’s Top 10 Best Towns for of July Celebrations by Travel & Leisure. Here are some of the events that helped our community earn that designation:
You’re going to catch some fireworks this Fourth of July, so why not catch them in comfort? On the Fourth of July, the UNC Kenan Memorial Stadium opens its doors to the Chapel Hill community for one of Travel & Leisure’s Top 10 Fourth of July celebrations. The fireworks spectacular is only visible from the stadium, so you’ll want to get your spot early. The gates will open at 7, with live music, fun for the kids and plenty of food available for purchase. At 9:30, sit back and relax as the sky comes alive with a brilliant display. Keep in mind that you can’t see these fireworks from anywhere else in Chapel Hill, so you don’t want to miss out.
Enjoy a Free Outdoor Concert at Southern Village
The Southern Village Outdoor Concert Series is in full swing, and July 3 from 6 until 8 you can enjoy the sounds of two great groups. First up is The Nashvilifiers with Lynn Blakey as well as performances by Echi Heins. Classic country, mandolin, fiddle and acoustic guitar pay homage to southern music traditions. You can bring a picnic and your blanket to enjoy the music on the grounds, but don’t be surprised if fellow attendees get up and dance! While you’re there, take in the shops and restaurants at Southern Village.
Take a Step Back in Time for an Old Fashioned 4th at Preservation Chapel Hill
One of the beauties of living in Chapel Hill is the rich history of this region. Preservation Chapel Hill is helping residents enjoy this history by reviving its Old Fashioned Fourth of July. From 1 until 3, head to the Horace Williams House for free ice cream and lemonade while you enjoy patriotic music from The Village Band and plenty of red, white, and blue decor. This event is over in plenty of time to head to the stadium for fireworks!
