Live music starts at 4 p.m. The featured performer is FlashBack the Party Band, which plays decades of classics — from the best of Motown, beach and disco music, to current hits. The band’s high-energy performances encourage audiences to get up and dance.
While in college, band member Monty Johnston played with the Swingin’ Medallions. Now, when he’s not playing with FlashBack, he teaches school and is director of the youth choir at his church, said Linda Blume, owner of the Willis Blume Agency, which handles the band’s bookings.
Fireworks begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. Admission is free.
Food vendors will offer a variety of food, beginning at noon.
Tables are available for purchase. Tables are $50 for Acworth residents, and $70 for nonresidents. The table package comes with six chairs and a parking pass. The pass allows parking at Cauble Park, as long as spots are available. Parking is by special pass only on July 4, but spots are not guaranteed. Organizers suggest arriving early.
If parking is full, event-goers must park downtown and walk to the park.
