Spend a whole day in Marietta! After the parade and checking out the festival, be sure to take the family to check out all the shops in the area. Work up an appetite and choose from one of the many restaurants in Marietta. As a remarkable city filled with a rich history, Marietta is constantly evolving and growing to offer more to our visitors and residents. With museums, music, live theatre, hiking trails, parks and more, there is always plenty to do.
Watch the fireworks show
End the day with a bang by watching Marietta’s very own firework show. Fireworks light up the sky and patriotic music fills the air at dark. The fireworks are shot from the parking lot of the Marietta First United Methodist Church. If inclement weather is expected, the fireworks may begin a few minutes early, to ensure the entire display is completed. Snag a spot early for a good view of the show.
