The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. Parades, watermelon and of course fireworks. Here is a list of fireworks displays scheduled in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. If you know of more please leave a comment and we will add it to the list so everyone can celebrate America's birthday! Make sure to check the dates – some celebrations are before and after July 4th.

Davidson County

Downtown Fireworks – On Wednesday, July 4th the biggest party in the area kicks off at noon in downtown Nashville. Headlined this year by Lady Antebellum, Chris Janson and more including the Nashville Symphony. There will be lots of family activities.  Check out all the details HERE to join in the downtown fun.

If you are avoiding the celebration because of parking – try riding in on the Music City Star. We've done it and it was wonderful! We arrived right downtown and the train left 30 minutes after the fireworks finished. Get tickets  HERE – they sell out fast so don't delay!
