Knoxville celebrates Festival on the Fourth


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Thousands gathered at World’s Fair Park to celebrate our country’s birthday at Knoxville’s annual Festival on the Fourth.

Everyone dressed to impress, wearing their red, white and blue. It was a hot day, but there were plenty of activities to cool off, including kids’ rock climbing, building Legos and cooling off on the splash pads. There was, of course, also lots of food.

Many were able to experience the performance lawn for the first time after the city renovated a few aspects of the area.

FESTIVAL ON THE FOURTH: Can't make it out to see the fireworks tonight? We've got you covered! Check out Knoxville's display starting at 9:35 pm.!
