Celebrate July 4th in Virginia!

by Hickerson Brothers on June 23, 2017

Virginia had a very impactful role as one of the first colonies to help pave the way towards the revolution against the British. Our wonderful state has been the site of many historical milestones that have helped shaped America. One major life changer was the last major battle of the revolutionary war that was fought in Yorktown Virginia! The victory won from this battle ultimately led to the end of the war! Of course, we Virginians have a lot to be proud of regarding our involvement in the American Revolution, so we make it a point to celebrate big! With our over-the-top fireworks and memorable parades, we take “Go big or go home” seriously. If you are looking for some fun celebrations around town this Independence Day, consider these fun activities for you and the family to participate in. Make this July 4th in Virginia a memorable one!

Abingdon’s Independence Day Extravaganza
