Fayetteville Lions to sponsor annual July 4 celebration

The Fayetteville Lions Club will once again sponsor the Fourth of July celebration in downtown Historic Fayetteville, according to Sally Kiner, executive director of the Fayetteville Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The patriotic parade kicks off in downtown Fayetteville on Friday, July 4 at 11 a.m. The fun continues downtown from 1 to 8:30 p.m. with old time games and craft and food vendors. The young and young at heart can join in the turtle races, frog jumping races, a hula hoop contest, water balloon toss, three-legged race, sack race, and watermelon spitting contest.

Bring your lawn chairs and sit under the stars and listen to live music provided by Six Miles Out taking the stage at 6 p.m. The celebration moves out to the Town Park for the spectacular fireworks extravaganza at dusk.

On Saturday, July 5, the Fayetteville Convention and Visitors Bureau hosts Market Day in Fayetteville from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. You can enjoy fresh, local fare from the Farmer’s Market, live music by Brian Hornsby, and visit arts and crafts vendors in the Artisan Village.

Meet and greet your hometown friends at Fayetteville’s Come on Home Reunion beginning at 10 a.m. at the American Legion, and you won’t want to miss Music in the Park that evening at 6:30 featuring Katrina Brown in the gazebo at Janutolo Park.

Fayetteville is a great spot to come stay, play, shop and dine anytime, Kiner said, but especially over this holiday weekend.

“It’s big time fun in a small town way in one of America’s coolest small towns,” she said, “and you won’t want to miss a minute of it.”
