Here are a handful of things to do on Independence Day other than blow your hand up with a bottle rocket:
Monell's at the Manor - Monell's will be having a 4th of July Celebration. Starting at 6 pm, you can enjoy BBQ ribs, grilled chicken and shrimp, fried chicken, steamed clams, side dishes, homemade ice cream, cold soda, and watermelon! They will also have the Big Band Orchestra so you can listen to great music while you eat.
Music City Hot Chicken Festival - If you haven't noticed, Nashville loves it's hot and spicy chicken. The Hot Chicken Festival starts at 11 am and ends at 3 pm in East Park ( 700 Woodland St.). There will be lots of vendors, along with an amateur cooking contest to see who has the best hot chicken around!
Music City July 4th 5K/10K Run - This run benefits the Salvation Army and will loop around Public Square Park. Registration $40 and begins at 6:30 am and the race is at 7:30 am at the Public Square Park (10 Public Square).
If we missed an event, put it in the comments. We don't want to miss anything fun in Nashville!
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
