Cue the fireworks, fire up the grill, and hang the stars and stripes proudly for all of Huntsville to see—the Fourth of July holiday weekend is nearly here! Independence Day holds a special meaning to the team at Martinson & Beason, P.C., as it does for many residents throughout Madison County.
The big question for many in the area is how to celebrate America’s birthday. We can’t imagine a better place to enjoy time with family and friends than right here in our own backyard.
Here are few nearby Fourth of July celebrations taking place in Huntsville and across Madison County on July 4, 2015:
U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s 4th of July Fireworks Extravaganza
Where: U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Huntsville, AL
When: Fireworks begin at 9 p.m.
While the fireworks show doesn’t kick off until 9 p.m., be sure to arrive early to participate in all the on-site activities the U.S. Space & Rocket Center has to offer! There will be a kid’s zone, with activities such as building paper rockets, a moon bounce, and chalk art. The 274th Army Material Command Band will also provide entertainment.
July 4th Celebration & Fireworks Display
Where: Dublin Park, Madison, AL
When: Activities begin at 2 p.m., fireworks at approx. 9 p.m.
Head over to Madison’s Dublin Park for a family-friendly Independence Day celebration.

These activities open at 2 p.m., with fireworks scheduled to start at 9 p.m. No parking will be allowed at Dublin Park, but shuttle services will be available from Bob Jones High School.
Spirit of America Festival

When: Events begin at 9 a.m., fireworks at approx. 9:30 p.m.
A short drive southwest from Huntsville will take you to an event the Southeast Tourism Society calls a “Top 20 Event in the Southeast” for the month of July. Decatur’s Spirit of America Festival provides free entertainment for thousands in the region, with children’s events, parades, and a Battle of the Bands competition. There will be a Veterans Walk to honor those who have served in the U.S. Military, and a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m.
From all of the Huntsville attorneys at Martinson & Beason, P.C., we would like to wish you a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend. We would also like to gently remind Huntsville residents that it is illegal to possess and shoot fireworks within city limits. (But no worries, you can enjoy any of the displays listed above!) Fireworks, however, are legal with Madison County outside of city limits.
Happy Independence Day to all in Huntsville and across Madison County!
