Celebrate Independence Day with thousands of happy kids and adults, and free games, free watermelon, and free fireworks at Mary Ross Waterfront Park in the heart of Historic Downtown Brunswick.
Festivities start at 7 p.m. and feature organized and supervised classic games like sack races, tug-of-wars, horseshoes, various ball games, hula-hoop contests and more. Players compete for prizes of delicious whole South Georgia watermelons. Can't win or just don't want to play but you still have a taste for watermelon? Free slices are handed out all evening, compliments of the City of Brunswick.
The fireworks over the waters of the East River and Oglethorpe Bay start around 9 p.m. and last 30 minutes.
This event is sponsored by The City of Brunswick, Golden Isles Arts and Humanities Association, and the Downtown Development Authority.
