Plan ahead and be prepared to avoid confusion on the day of the celebration.
The countdown in on!
In one week from today, patriotic spectators will make their way to Oconee Veterans Park to celebrate America's independence at the first-ever Oconee July 4th Spectacular.
There will be food, fireworks, kids activities, fireworks, a parade, fireworks...did we mention fireworks?
