July Fourth Celebrations Around West Cobb – Things To Do

July Fourth Celebrations will be taking place all around West Cobb, and you can even attend more than one since some are on different days. Growing up in small towns in northern New Jersey, I remember standing on the sidewalk watching the parade, waving a flag as veterans, neighborhood business floats, and marching bands parading by. In high school we lived across the street from where the holiday festivities were held and sat on blankets in our front yard to watch the evening fireworks display. The holiday is steeped in history, but also in so many childhood memories. Living in West Cobb often reminds me of those days as I attend neighborhood festivals and celebrations. And while I love the proximity of a “big city”, I cannot imagine living anywhere else! My only dilemma now is which celebration to attend.

In addition to the community events below, several neighborhoods will host their own celebrations for residents. Check with your HOA to see what’s going in your neighborhood.

If you want to venture around metro Atlanta , here are some festivities you might want to look into. Some of these begin or occur prior to July 4th, require advance registration and/or admission fees, so please click the links to learn more.
