An Independence Day Eve to Remember!

As every patriot knows, and as Memorial Day reminds us, FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

So mark your calendars to celebrate that truth with us on Independence Day Eve (Monday, July 3rd!) with hundreds of grateful Americans at Magnalia Homestead & Farm in Stokesdale.

In addition to a spectacular fireworks show (called “The Best Show East of the Mississippi” by partial observers), there will be:

» Food and Ice Cream Trucks

» Pony rides

» A Patriot’s Polaroid Photo Booth, with Americana Props

» Colonial and contemporary American games (stone put competition, corn hole, archery, races and more!)

» Riding Mechanical Bull

» Magic Shows

» Cotton Candy Machine (for kids of all ages)

» Patriotic Music (all types)

» U.S. history Presentations in Semper Fi Hall

» American Historical Documents on Display in the Homestead Library

» Tractor hay rides

» Mountain Biking on Surrounding Trails

» Kids Flag Painting Craft Table

» Red, White & Blue Water Balloon Toss

» Castle Bounce House

» Animal exhibits (Sheep, Turkeys, Turtles, Rabbits, and assorted birds

» Pistol Shoot Competition (pistol, 3 bullets and target provided)

» Colonial Stew Served at Walden Cabin

» Community Garden & Bee Hive Tour

» Colonial Reenactors

» Drone Demonstration

» Big Screen Entertainment (as darkness falls)

» Special Stage Performance

» And More! (Full schedule will be emailed to ticketholders prior to event)

Suggested donations for tickets are $5/person, $10/couple or $20/family to help offset some of the costs for the fireworks, photo booth, bounce house, tents and other supplies. If this creates any difficulty for you, however, we have created a FREE option. We do not want the cost to deter anyone from coming, and a family has agreed to pay the cost of tickets for any who cannot afford it!

All proceeds from ticket, food and beverage purchases will benefit Magnalia Homestead Foundation’s ministry activities with veterans, the special needs community, and assorted guests seeking care or fellowship from near and far.

Tickets are being limited to 400 this year, and they will go fast! So please RSVP soon to help us plan for you and yours. : )

We’re excited to see you, and to celebrate together our great nation and the privilege of being Americans!
