Independence Day Celebrations in Walton County begin this weekend

Independence Day Celebrations in Walton County get an early start this year! There is no parade in Loganville, but there is one in Social Circle. There are, however, plenty of other fun things to do, and what promises to be a great fireworks display in Loganville, just a few days early. There are plenty events to help you celebrate Independence Day in Walton County on June 29 as well as on July 4th.

The list of fun things to do is given below!

Social Circle

You’re invited to join in the patriotic celebrations in Social Circle as the city celebrates Independence Day with a Parade, Music, Food, Family Fun and FIREWORKS! – June 29 – 10 a.m, to 10 p.m.

The day begins in Downtown Social Circle with a parade at 10 am. After the parade, you’re invited to stay and visit the local shops and have lunch! Short route this year – it will not go to Stephen’s Park as in years past. A map of the parade route is given below. This year, Social Circle is honoring the legacy of Larry Gene Knox as grand marshall. His wife, Jeanette, will be riding in his memory. Food, music and kids stuff starts at Stephens Park at 5 pm. Fireworks will be at 9:45 pm. There will be waterslides for the kids this year! A $10 wristband gets unlimited play on waterslides and bounce houses!

Food will be available from from Chick fil a, Johnny’s Pizza, Tickled Pig BBQ, DD’s shaved ice, Shriners and Knox Chapel Missionary Baptist Church.


This year’s celebration is in partnership with Walton County and will include a number of activities for the kids, a live concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. on June 29, 2019,  featuring the Journey tribute band Departure, as well as food vendors and the ever-popular fireworks display – all at West Walton Park.

Parking for the event will be available at the Meridian Community Center, with a shuttle provided to the West Walton Park football fields. Additional parking will also be available at First Baptist Church of Loganville, located on Tom Brewer Road. 

The American Legion will Celebrate Independence Day on July 4th and below is flyer that gives all the details!


Fireworks will be provided by the city of Monroe at dark over the Athens Tech stadium on July 4th.  The show can be viewed from surrounding parking lots and on-street parking.   The show will be about 20 minutes long with the Monroe Fire department shooting the fireworks.  There will, however, not be any activities at the Athens Tech field. The fireworks show will begin at dark (approximately 8:45 pm).

There also will be a celebration from noon to 8 p.m. at Matthews Park on July 4th with free food and drinks for the community. See details in the flyer below.

Happy Independence Day Walton County.
