Collegedale Celebrates with its Annual Fireworks Celebration


On Sunday, September 1st, Collegedale’s annual fireworks celebration will take place at the Collegedale Veterans’ Memorial Park.


This celebration was originally set for July 4th, but rain forced the city to reschedule the event for Labor Day Weekend.


The East Tennessee Symohony Orchestra, directed by Richard Hickam, will perform Fanfare for the Common Man by Aaron Copland, performing, Hickam says, “to the memory of our dear friend Ray Minner who passed away right before our July 3 concert, 2012.”


As always, the ETSO is guaranteed to provide a noteworthy performance. Music will start at 8 p.m.


Take a trip to the park this upcoming Sunday evening, and bring a blanket or a few lawn chairs. Enjoy the music and the vendors. Revel in the opportunity to relax under a sky full of fireworks.
