Independence Day Celebration 

The Parks and Recreation Department hosts the City's only Independence Day Celebration each year on July 4 (regardless of what weekday it falls) at Covered Bridge Park. 

With the help of the City of Elizabethton Fire and Police Department the celebration features a special opening ceremony with prayer, National Anthem, 21 Gun Salute and the Pledge of Allegiance. The day continues with patrons enjoying free inflatables, live music on the stage, concessions for sale, a patriotic bike parade, a beauty pageant, dance team recitals, autographs from the Elizabethton Twins players and a day filled with patriotism and fun.
