Callaway Gardens continues annual 4th of July Tradition

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

 

Hidden in the rolling hills of the Chattahoochee Valley is Robin Lake Beach at Callaway Gardens.

"The beach has been here since 1953 and I am confident that we have had a July 4th celebration every year of that," Rachel Crumbley said. 

While Alyssa Jenkins and her family  have celebrated 4th of July together each year, this happens to be the family's first time at Callaway gardens.

"We always do the fireworks together and this year has actually been one of the first years where we have been able to go somewhere and see a big fireworks show," Jenkins said.  
 
"We got here this morning and got us an umbrella and then we all came down a little later but its been fun," Gary Jenkins said. 

The Callaway Gardens 4th of July celebration includes free live music, sand castle contest, and to top it off a fire works show at dark. This year there are more vendors and activities for families to enjoy and as always safety measures are in place at the beaches.

"We have life guards on duty at all the swimming areas so we want to make sure that if you are here with your children that you keep an eye on them but we are also going to keep our eye on them as well and we want to make sure people hydrate and wear sunscreen and just make it a fund day for everybody," Crumbley said. 

The fireworks show begins around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday evening and final concert will be at 10 p.m.
