Fourth of July is one of our favorite times of the year. A wonderful day to celebrate the freedoms we share and the country we love. There are several great events happening in the greater Hocking Hills area for July 4th.
Thunder in the Valley
Thunder in the Valley has gained popularity over the years for its great July 4th fireworks display even attracting people from across the state! Located at Hocking college, the event has vendors, games, and other festivities concluding with an amazing firework show set to music. To avoid traffic and parking, consider taking the train. There will be a departure from the Nelsonville depot to Hocking College; departure times are 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 pm, passengers will be returned to the depot once the fireworks end. Rides are $4 per passenger and tickets are sold on a first come, first serve basis.
The Hocking County Fairgrounds in Logan will be hosting fireworks as well. Sometimes we can see the fireworks from the patio, while other times it’s just the distant booming. Either way, the local fireworks are not to be missed! The Fairfield County Fairgrounds in Lancaster will be holding a fireworks show along with a parade, rides, and concession stands. A few locals are known to let off fireworks from their private land as well so you never know where the next boom will come from!
If you are coming to Hocking Hills for the weekend be sure to stop by for a round of golf or grab a bite to eat at our Urban Grille! Happy Independence Day from Hocking Hills Golf Club have a safe holiday!
