Where to celebrate Independence Day in Gadsden County

Fourth of July in Havana

For residents of East Gadsden County, a fireworks display will be held at 5F Farm – which is located between Quincy and Havana.

The fireworks show will be hosted by the Greenshade-Dogtown Volunteer Fire Department.

The show will begin at around 8 p.m., but the fun will begin earlier – at 1 p.m., with vendors and live music.

This year, the show is dedicated to Assistant Fire Chief Rev. Roderick Whitehurst, who passed away earlier this year.

“He was all about that country life and a critical member of the team and a trustworthy friend to all who met him,” wrote the Greenshade-Dogtown Volunteer Fire Department.

5F Farm is located at 8583 Salem Road, Quincy.

Fourth of July in Greensboro

The Kiwanis Club of Greensboro will be hosting the annual fireworks show in Greensboro.

This will be the 45th year that the club has hosted fireworks for the Greensboro community – and while the event took a bit of a break in 2020, the show is back in full swing.

The Greensboro fireworks show will be held at Greensboro Elementary School, which is located at 559 Greensboro Highway.

This year, the firework show will also include musical entertainment from The Caliber Band, and food from visiting food trucks.

The firework show itself will begin at sundown, but visitors are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy the live music and food. 

Those who would like to watch the fireworks show can do so by parking in their cars near the elementary school – most of the fireworks-watchers will be parked along Tolar White Road.

Fourth of July in Chattahoochee

For Gadsden County residents looking to do a little more this Independence Day, the City of Chattahoochee will be hosting a Fourth of July Celebration on the banks of the river.

The festivities will include a selection of food vendors, craft booths, activities for kids and families, live musical entertainment, and of course – fireworks.

This year’s musical entertainment will be provided by Billy Dean.

The festivities will start at 2 p.m., and continue through the day until the fireworks show after dark.

There will be no admission to the festival, and families are encouraged to come out and enjoy a fun-filled afternoon that celebrates the holiday by bringing the community together.

The festival celebration will be held at Chattahoochee’s River Landing Park, which is located at 269 River Landing Road.
