The Nashville Church of Scientology joins the celebration of Independence Day.
The 4th of July is the Nation’s day to reflect on our freedom. It was a long time coming, and took a concerted effort of many dedicated men and women to bring it to fruition. Rev. Brian Fesler of the Church of Scientology says, “This day brings the entire community together in solidarity, as we reflect on the freedoms we have and look at what it took to get here.” The Church of Scientology celebrates each year with a community barbecue.
Celebrations will take place all across the Nashville area, the largest gathering of course taking place along Riverfront Park with a free concert before the fireworks show. Billy Currington, Ashley Monroe and Striking Matches, and the Nashville Symphony are set to headline outdoor performances, and Riverfront Park also boasts the South’s largest fireworks show. Festivities usually begin downtown at around noon and go on throughout the day, with the city's annual fireworks show normally beginning at around 9:30pm.
The Adventure Science Center offers tickets for guests to view the downtown fireworks display from its prime view, without having the hustle and bustle of downtown traffic.
Each Nashville community celebrates Independence Day. In Brentwood, there is a fireworks display after a concert at Crockett Park, and the city of Franklin does it with “Franklin on the Fourth,” which offers fun for all the family, children's activities, food, musical entertainment and a huge fireworks show, which is sponsored by the Franklin Lions Club.
