Fourth of July in Roanoke, VA

Are you ready for the Fourth of July?  There are a number of different events going on in Roanoke this year!  If you don’t have anything planned, you may want to check out one of these celebrations.

The Four on the Fourth is a four-mile run that benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia.  It begins on Reserve Avenue at 8:00 a.m.  Before shooting off fireworks, why not run for charity?

While there was some doubt about the annual Fourth of July concert, it has been confirmed that the event will take place as usual.  There was some concern regarding funding for the Music for Americans concert and fireworks display, but anonymous donors and the WBDJ7 Berglund Automotive Group stepped up to pay the tab.  The concert will take play on July 4th at the River’s Edge Sports Complex at 5:00 p.m., with the fireworks display kicking off at 9:30 p.m.

If you’d rather stay home, here are some other things you could do to celebrate the Fourth:

•    Have a family cook out

•    Buy a volleyball net and invite friends over for a game

•    If it’s too hot to be outdoors, have a movie marathon.

•    Have a picnic dinner at a local park.
