It’s time for Murphy to roll out their Fourth of July Celebrations, and this year will not disappoint. Kicking off the weekend is Murphy’s Art Walk. The first Friday of every month, this year falls the weekend of the Fourth. During the Art Walk, not only will there be great vendors and local artist, but the Cowboys & Indians Band will be playing at the Red Brick Deli. Andrews Brewing Company is having live music Thursday, Friday, & Saturday. The Folk School is featuring The Chuck Nation Band at 7 pm on Friday the 1st.  Monday, July 4th, Murphy kicks off their celebration with their parade, starting at 10 a.m. During the day, there will be bouncy houses, competitions, food vendors, the much anticipated Peanut Drop and much more at the Park all day. Weather Permitting there will be tethered RE/MAX balloon rides from 7-9 with all proceeds benefiting a local charity, always a large draw. The festivities will be concluded in the evening with fireworks!

Our neighbors to the south of us in Blue Ridge are going to have a lot of fun. Head out to Lake Blue Ridge to check up the Light up the Lake Boat Parade.  July 2nd in downtown Blue Ridge is the Fourth of July Day Parade with fireworks to follow at dusk at Blue Ridge Marina.

Blairsville, GA is having their firework celebration at Meek’s Part. Vogel Park is having their annual celebration starting with their Flag Raising Ceremony at 8:30 am. During the day expect pedal boat races, sandcastle competition, a watermelon eating contest, sack race, greased pole climbing and much more. 


Have a great, safe weekend. Get out and explore.
