HISTORIC ROOTS BREED LASTING TRADITIONS
While the annual North Carolina 4th of July Festival started in the 1970s in the City of Southport, the celebration has been rolling since the late 1700s when ladies dressed in white would march through the town of Smithville in observance of our countries independence. Today, that tradition is honored with soldiers dressed in uniform, the festival’s Freedom Run, and a special appearance by the newly crowned Miss North Carolina.
JOIN THE FUN!
Be sure to catch all the excitement this 4th of July right in Southport! The parade starts at eleven o’clock in the morning at East Moore Street and Atlantic Avenue. For more information, visit the website for the North Carolina 4th of July Festival today.
