Yes, it is true, Greensboroians are spoiled. We are in the middle of everything. We have great vacation spots in the mountains and wonderful vacation opportunities at the beach. From mountains to ocean, we traverse our highways headed to our favorite destinations. Most of this travel takes us on either I-40 or I-85. Many of our residents are leaving town this weekend for big Fourth of July vacations.
Many of us who stay in town will kick off the Fourth of July on the evening of July 3rd at the Grasshoppers baseball game and fireworks at the stadium. On July the Fourth, we will go to the parade downtown and spend the day at the Fun Fourth celebration. Then, later in the afternoon, we will head out for family fun at the parade in the Kirkwood neighborhood. We will cap off the day with a game of cornhole at the Coliseum and enjoy the concert at the White Oak Ampitheater awaiting the city's fireworks display. This is the second year that the fireworks will be at the Coliseum.
Fun Fourth has been a Greensboro tradition since 1975 (37 years). The Kirkwood parade has been going on since 1948 (64 years). Greensboro has so much tradition on the Fourth of July. As a matter of fact, there is so much to do, we simply can't bring ourselves to leave.
