4th of July Parade

Last year the parade was rained out but this year’s parade has no rain in the forecast. The parade begins at 9:00 a.m. on Peachtree Parkway South at Braelinn Golf Club and proceeds north to McIntosh Trail, turning west, and ending at the Recreation Complex across from Huddleston Elementary.

If you are planning on driving anywhere tomorrow morning, you should expect some delays. There will be a lot of traffic in Peachtree City and some roadways that will be completely closed, especially near the parade route.

Public Safety Expo at Drake Field

Meet Peachtree City’s Firefighters and Police Officers, see the canines, join in the annual water battle, watch the Jaws of Life demo, and tour the Fire Safety bus. Bring along your bicycle and helmet for a bike safety rodeo with a Police Mountain Bike instructor.

4th Fest at the Plaza

This year is the first year City Hall Plaza is putting on a big event on the 4th! We are so excited to see what it will be like. Judging by the description, it should be a blast! The Fourth Fest at City Hall Plaza will have the following:

Live music by This Side Up and Second Chance
Rock climbing wall
Inflatables
Face painting
Contests
Public safety demonstrations
Food vendors
Local non-profit organizations

Fireworks over Lake Peachtree

Everyone wants the best view of the Peachtree City fireworks on the 4th! Many people have been wondering about the rules on spot saving this year. I had a friend tell me her blanket was thrown away because they saved a spot and pinned the blanket down with four bricks. The police were removing the rocks last year because of the walking hazard it makes traveling in the dark after the fireworks show. After that, it was easy for someone to pick up and throw away for someone to take her spot. Adopted June 6, 2013 was a city regulation that there is no saving spots for the 4th of July. Quoted from Peachtree City Code Sec. 54-14 and Sec. 70-3 “No stakes, tents, barricades, or canopies allowed. No unattended vehicles, golf carts, or personal items allowed. Tarps and blankets ONLY may be placed beginning after dawn on July 4th. Illegally placed items can be removed as trash.”

This years firework show will be slightly due to the empty lake. However, the fireworks themselves will still be quite grand and fun to watch. The city has issued the following warnings/policies regarding this year’s firework show.

Stay Off Lake Bed – No Fireworks viewing will be permitted from the lake bed of Lake Peachtree.

No Parking on Hwy 54 – No parking will be allowed on Highway 54 for viewing the fireworks.

Blankets and Tarps Reminder

Peachtree City ordinance prohibits any “space saving” for the parade or fireworks before dawn on July 4. At dawn, blankets and tarps only are allowed – no stakes, tents, barricades, or other items can be used to save a spot. No blankets or tarps will be permitted on City Hall Plaza until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 4, to allow for setup for the 4th Fest.

What time is “Dawn?” Civil dawn is defined as when the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon. The U.S. Naval Oceanography Portal indicates that civil dawn on July 4, 2014, in Peachtree City will be at 6:05 a.m., with sunrise at 6:34 a.m. The link to their online calculator (for any date and any location) is http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/RS_OneDay.php.

Blankets placed early will be removed and available for pickup at Public Works Monday – Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. until discarded.

No Firework viewing from lake bed!
