Some of the traditional 4th of July celebrations in Nashville are canceled to support the social distancing efforts during COVID. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t great ways to celebrate 4th of July during COVID in Nashville.
Explore a Local State Park
4th of July is all about celebrating our Nation’s freedom and beauty. What better way to do that than experiencing Nashville’s wonderful nature preserves first hand?
The 4th is a great chance to re-discover areas like Percy Warner Park, Percy Priest Lake, or even state parks right outside Nashville like Long Hunter State Park in Wilson County. Take advantage of great hiking trails or simply relax by the lake—and you’ll be close enough to home to still grill out at night!
Watch Let Freedom Sing! Music City
While Let Freedom Sing! won’t take place in its usual format this year you can still enjoy it by watching online or on NewsChannel5 starting at 9PM. This year an all-star lineup of musicians performs to honor healthcare heroes, first responders, and frontline workers.
Watch the Fireworks (socially distanced!)
Even though there won’t be a crowd gathered along the Cumberland to watch this year you will still be able to enjoy Nashville’s amazing fireworks show. If you’re not able to watch from a rooftop downtown (in a safe, socially distanced setting) you can catch the celebration on NewsChannel5 and various streaming devices.
Get Some Great Food from Local Restaurants
Who says you need to be doing all the cooking and barbecuing yourself on July 4? Take the opportunity to support a local restaurant by getting food to go or delivered. What better way to celebrate Independence Day than with one of Nashville’s unique culinary offerings?
