  1. how do we go about getting a handicap parking space it is to far to walk and standing for the shuttle bus is a task when you cant stand but only for a few minutes, thanks Dorothy

  2. For those of us that are new to town, where should we park, and how to we get to the park? For people that don’t purchase a table, will there be picnic space available, and is there a playground or something to keep children occupied?

    • Hi Jackie,

      Parking is available at various locations downtown, and shuttle service is available from the City Hall parking lot beginning at 3pm. Regarding the picnic space, yes there will be plenty of space and numerous activities for the kids. Welcome to Acworth and hope you have a great time at the festival.

    • Its a nightmare go the park. If you have kids prepare to wait a long time to ride the shuttle back to your car. There are literalky thousands of people. Its also so noisy you wont be able to talk without screaming. The music is extremely loud. Bring a blanket and go early if you want to find a place to sit. They also have port-a-potties. Thats always a lot of fun with kids.

    • Hi Lynn,

      You can bring lawn chairs or blankets or both. Hope you have a great time and enjoy the fireworks.

  3. Found a website that says rain date is tomorrow at 9:30 if they’re rained out tonight, and per there is 100% chance of rain at 9pm, 85% at 10pm, 50% at 11pm…my guess is cancelled

  4. Hi,
    So have the fireworks been rescheduled for tonight (July 5th)? Weather was awful and the Marietta Square still did theirs I’ve heard…


    • Hi Beth,
      According to the Acworth Parks and Recreation Department, “The canceled July 4th Concert and Fireworks are not scheduled for Tuesday, July 5th. They will be rescheduled for a later date in the summer.”

    • Hi Paige,
      No reschedule date has been announced yet for the Acworth fireworks. Woodstock also canceled their fireworks yesterday and rescheduled their event for tonight – July 5, 2011. The address is:
      Target Shopping Center, 140 Woodstock Square Avenue, Woodstock, GA 30189

    • Why would they not do them tonight… that’s just crazy. Later on in the summer… no meaning to it, might as well have a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in August.

  5. So there are fireworks at woodstock tonight?? Are all of the comments from this year? Because this was posted just a couple of days ago but yet there are comments from 2008? A bit confused on all of the comments.
