Fourth of July fireworks to explode over Black Mountain Neuro-Medical Treatment Center

Black Mountain News
Fourth of July festivities in downtown Black Mountain included a cookout at Harwood Home for Funerals, a street dance, music at Louise's Kitchen and a fireworks display.

On June 28, the popular Fourth of July fireworks will ring once again over the Black Mountain Neuro-Medical Treatment Center. 

Folks will delight in the evening’s many activities during the 26th annual Independence Day Celebration, from the early evening giggles of children dancing to Tuxedo Junction to the “oohs and ahs” during the finale of the fireworks show. All activities take place on the center's campus west of downtown Black Mountain.

Festivities will kick off at 6:30 p.m. with games for the children, live music, barbecue and hot dogs in the food tent, as well as a 50/50 raffle. Susan Mundy, a long-time friend of the center and a former WLOS newsperson, will be the emcee for the night.  Tuxedo Junction, a two-decade-old musical force in Western North Carolina and beyond, will perform a wide range of music that will include Glenn Miller, Johnny Cash and the B-52s.

Financial support for the Independence Day Celebration is provided by the Black Mountain Center Foundation in partnership with several community supporters. The Foundation’s sole mission is to expand the events and activities available to the pepole who call the Black Mountain Neuro-Medical Treatment Center home.  

The center is unable to accommodate pets during this event, and as always, alcohol is not permitted on campus.
