Get ready for a fun-filled day on Thursday, July 4th, as a fun day of food, music, inflatables and more awaits as the 2024 Independence Day Extravaganza sponsored by Atrium Health Floyd takes over Ridge Ferry Park. 

The park opens to the public at noon with food trucks and concessions available. At 1 p.m., the splash zone opens with four water inflatables for kids to enjoy. Wristbands for the splash zone will be $5. Later in the evening, park goers can listen and dance to Rome, Georgia native, Hunter Chastain live from the Coca-Cola stage.  

One of the largest fireworks shows in Georgia will be shot from the top of Jackson Hill starting at approximately 9:35 p.m. Zambelli Fireworks is once again shooting the display that will feature more than 1,500 fireworks of all types, colors and sizes.  

“We look forward to this event every year, and we want everyone to come out to the park and enjoy a great day of food, fun, music and of course fireworks,” Todd Wofford, RFPRA Director says. “We also want to thank Atrium Health Floyd for sponsoring this great event.” 

Rome Radio Partners will once again be broadcasting a simulcast featuring patriotic music to go along with the display. Just a reminder that parking for the event is $5 and card only.   

Please keep in mind that no large coolers, pets, drones, fires or sparklers are allowed in Ridge Ferry Park. The main parking lot at Ridge Ferry is reserved for handicapped parking only and regular parking at the Shoals Side of Ridge Ferry where the dog park is located.
