Vance County Department of Tourism will hold the annual Independence Day Weekend Celebration at Satterwhite Point on Saturday, July 4, 2015. There will be food vendors, fireworks, entertainment by Frankie Faucet and "The Drips" and ranger programs.
A parking fee will be charged. The fee is $6 per car ($4 if the driver is 62 years old or older)and is the standard parking fee at Kerr Lake State Recreation Area. It is requested that those attending the event bring exact change if possible as this will allow for quicker entry of vehicles. The park generally fills by about 8:00 pm on the night of the event, so plan accordingly. Those attending the event should anticipate some traffic delays. Also, if a vehicle leaves the park prior to the fireworks, reentry may not be possible due to the limited parking.
Ranger programs will be held in front of the Community Building from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Frankie Faucet and "The Drips" will perform Beach and Oldies music along with your favorites from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm behind the Community Building.
The fireworks will start approximately between 9:15 pm and 9:30 pm.
It is recommended that visitors bring a flashlight with them because there will be limited lighting.
