This Fourth of July, bring yourself, your family and friends and join thousands of happy kids and adults for free games, free watermelon, and of course free fireworks at Mary Ross Waterfront Park in the heart of Historic Downtown Brunswick.
The festivities start at 7:00 p.m. and feature organized and supervised classic games like sack races, tug-of-wars, horseshoes, various ball games, hula-hoop contests and more. Players compete for prizes of delicious whole South Georgia watermelons. Can't win or just don't want to play but you still have a taste for watermelon? Free slices are handed out all evening, compliments of the City of Brunswick.
The fireworks over the waters of the East River and Oglethorpe Bay start about 9:00 p.m. and last 30 minutes. A great, fun, family event that's sponsored each year by The City of Brunswick, Golden Isles Arts and Humanities Association, and the Downtown Development Authority.
