Summer is on its way, and with June already here, that means July – specifically, the Fourth of July – is right around the corner. Here at Trent Buick GMC, Independence Day is one of our favorite holidays. It’s never too soon to start marking your calendar for all the great Fourth of July events the city of New Bern has to offer.
The Glorious Fourth
Family-friendly crafts and games, historical interpreters, and a live reading of the Declaration of Independence are just a few of the things visitors can experience at the Glorious Fourth, taking place in the morning from 10 AM until 2 PM. The event itself is totally free, including entry to the Tryon Palace gardens and a performance by the Fife and Drum Corps.
Finish up your evening at Tryon Palace by attending Independence Night from 5:30 until 9:30 PM. Taking place at the Palace’s North Carolina History Center, this event includes not just a stunning fireworks show for all ages, but food, live music, and activities for children. Enjoy the beautiful view of the fireworks over its waterfront stage, as well as the many food trucks that will be present. Be sure to bring your own lawn chairs and blankets.
New Bern will have more Fourth of July events posted on their website as Independence Day draws nearer, so keep your eyes open for other great events coming soon.
