Star-Spangled Snellville Nears
The annual fourth of July event will actually be held on the fourth of July this year.
Star-Spangled Snellville is just around the corner, and organizers are working to be sure citizens have a safe and fun time on the town green.
This year, the festivities will be organized by Snellville Tourism and Trade, though in years past First Baptist Church of Snellville handled.
It is being presented and sponsored by a number of groups: Summit Chase Country Club, Eastside Medical Center, the Gwinnett Citizen (sponsor), the city of Snellville (sponsor) and Hamilton Financial (sponsor).
Fun begins 3 p.m. on July 4, which is Wednesday. Fireworks will shoot off at dusk.
There will be entertainment, a bungee jump and train rides, along with a number of games, such as the watermelon eating contest, a cake walk and a cookie walk.
Organizers also are encouraging visitors to wear their best red, white and blue outfits.
