July 4th Celebration in Waynesville, North Carolina

I love the way our town of Waynesville, NC celebrates July 4th weekend. It's that quaint, small town feeling of being a part of the experience. I grew up in a small town with that same exact feeling and Waynesville brings me back. The weekend starts out on Friday with Art After Dark. Take a stroll through town and visit all the art galleries and studios. They all have special events going on within their stores and all are open till 9PM. Come back to Andon-Reid Inn and innduldge on some desserts that have been freshly baked and have a glass of wine. After a good nights sleep, follow the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the sweet smells of breakfast being prepared just for you. Now that your tummy has been satisfied, head on back to town for the Stars & Stripes Celebration. This year we've also added the Freedom Festival which is an indoor show featuring all handmade items from over 50 local artists and craftsmen. Now you're ready for a little relaxation back at our place. Sit on the wrap around porch on one of our rockers and read for awhile or head on downstairs and shoot a game of pool or watch a movie. We always have an array of snacks out along with some warm confections. Now comes my favorite part...the fireworks. Haywood County is fortunate to have a couple of different venues for you to choose from. At Maggie Valley Festival Grounds you have Red White & Boom, a dazzling display of fireworks. Lake Junaluska has fireworks over the lake, beautiful! Whatever you choose you will feel like you are living in a Norman Rockwell painting. Come visit us in the mountains.

Reid, Very Happy Innkeeper
