Independence Day Celebration Planned for Downtown Piedmont, July 2nd

Tuesday’s Piedmont City Council Planning Meeting opened up with Terry Batey and Ashlee Jones from the Piedmont Arts and Entertainment Committee. Batey explained that they were trying to curve the budget a bit for this year’s 4th of July event downtown, but are still looking to bring in talent such as “Kings of Swing”, a band based out of Gadsden.

Batey went on to say they were putting together a children’s area, including attractions such as a petting zoo, Sam the Balloon Man, and possibly even horse rides. They are currently asking for sponsors and vendors for the event.  The estimated cost will be under $3,500 and the committee will meet Thursday night at 6pm to go over all of the details involved in the celebration.

A fireworks show is also planned to top off the evening, and as of right now, the event will take place on Saturday July 2nd from 3pm – 9pm at the Piedmont Sports Complex.  If the event gets rained out, they will have fireworks only on Monday July 4th.

In other news, Jones also shared that a job fair would be taking place on June 13th at the Oxford Civic Center. They also announced that more family movie nights were in the works for Piedmont as well.
