Fireworks Are Pretty!

The rutabagas headed downtown and grabbed a spot on the east side of LP field for the Independence Day fireworks.  We had a great view, but we could only faintly hear the Nashville Symphony in the distance.  The show was AMAZING.  Everyone who lives in Nashville should go at least once.  Heck, you could even make it an annual tradition.

Must haves: a good spot with a clear view of the Batman building

Could have done without it: the long walk

What makes it special: It only happens once a year, and it’s one of the best Independence Day pyrotechnics shows in the nation.

Know before you go: The show usually starts a little before 9:30, but you should head over at least an hour early to deal with parking and to get a good spot.

Parking: Good Luck!  There was an estimated 100,000 people downtown for the celebration, so plan for the crowds and head out early.  You can find a place to park, but you may have to walk a good ways to get to your viewing spot.

Price: FREE
