If you live in the South, you’re well-aware that there is likely no better summertime combination than barbecues with friends, ice-cold sweet tea, swimming pools, sunshine and good times. That is particularly true for the Fourth of July! Falling on a Wednesday this year, the weekend prior and following hold the promise of an extended celebration of our nation’s independence. With so much FUN planned – both inside Traditions of Braselton and out in our neighboring towns, you’ve got some big decisions to make where your social calendar is concerned!
Traditions of Braselton Fourth of July Celebration
The Social Committee has been hard at work again this year in preparation for the annual 4th of July golf cart, bike parade, and pool party. The golf cart and bike parade will start at the corner of Harmony Grove and Traditions Way at 11:45 a.m. Participants are asked to line up by 11:30 a.m. Awards will be given for the best decorated golf cart and bike – so be prepared to show off your creativity. Following the parade, a catered cookout will start at noon. Lunch is $10/person, which includes a choice of hamburger or hot dog, two sides, a dessert, beer, coke, water, and live music. This event represents a terrific way to get to know the neighbors, enjoy some fun summertime traditions and celebrate the 4th of July as a community.
