In this week's paper and at RockdaleNews.com you can find out where all the good family fun can be had here in Rockdale County.
We ask you to please be careful this year. Do not drink and drive. If you party too much, have a designated driver.
Georgia has strong laws concerning firecrackers; those of you that go to South Carolina or Alabama to purchase firecrackers to use at home, please know that it is illegal to have certain firecrackers in this state. If you do buy them, remember that just a spark can start a major fire and early explosion can maim or kill.
We don't want to lose any of our readers to careless celebrations.
There are many ways to watch fireworks. Organizers and the City of Conyers have put together a truly "Fabulous 4th Festival" at the Georgia International Horse Park, starting at 5 p.m. and capping off with a spectacular fireworks display.
Another way to watch the spectacle is in the comfort of your home as the Capitol Fourth is celebrated on PBS.
However you celebrate the Fourth, God bless you, God bless Rockdale County and God bless America.
