Don’t look now but the Fourth of July is practically here. I know right!? It snuck up on us a bit too. This grand holiday can hardly be celebrated in just one day but we’ll get things started early at Crystal Mountain’s Old Fashioned Fourth Carnival (and fireworks), held on July 3 beginning at 3pm.
Here’s FOUR reasons you might like this year’s festivities:
1. Human-sized Hamster Balls and Hippo Chow Down
After a one-year hiatus THEY ARE BACK and now kids will once again climb into a large inflatable ball for the chance to experience life as their pet hamster sees it. Or, have you ever wanted to be part of a board game? At the Hippo Chow Down, you are the hippo!
2. Petting Zoo
Goats, bunnies and a very affable camel are among the typical attendees at the petting zoo. It’s magical for the kids and entertaining for the adults but what’s more, there are great photo and selfie opportunities.
3. Fun & Games
Feats of strength, an accurate throw, powers of observation or quite frankly, just being a cute kid can earn you fabulous prizes – or at least 2-8 year olds think they’re pretty fabulous! That’s not even to mention the face painting and glitter tattoos.
4. Fireworks over the Mountain
The show is free and open to the public so bring a lawn chair and get the star-spangled holiday started a night early!
