Kennesaw’s Salute to America Celebration Offers Fireworks and Live Music July 3
The City of Kennesaw is hosting a pre-Fourth of July celebration that’s sure to be a hit. The city’s “Salute to America” will be held in downtown Kennesaw the night of July 3, from 6 to 11 p.m., with fireworks, live music, food and more.
Live music will be played frequently throughout the night on two different stages: the main stage, located in front of the Depot, and the family stage, located in a parking lot off Main Street near the pedestrian underpass. Musical guests include several tribute singers, including The Stranger, who will sing Billy Joel hits beginning at 8 p.m. on the main stage, as well as several local artists.
