    So since the bus thing got cancelled are we doing refunds or is a makeup our only option? It won't really be the same without the fireworks.

      We're working on a makeup event that will hopefully still be a lot of fun. Since we had committed to the bus company, refunds will not be possible. It was really frustrating that the weather didn't cooperate to see the fireworks, but we're going to make the best of it!

    We are eating at Carrabas in Green Hills. After we are done we will head to the Batter's Box. See you all there after a while!

    July 4, 2013

  • Kurt A.

    Okay... for anyone who would still like to celebrate downtown, the Batter's Box is still our destination! They are going to allow us to set up our own little tent city of SUV's and tents. They have roped off an area in the parking lot next to the street that will fit 4 SUV's with the lift gates open and tents in between. So, if you have an SUV, canopy tent, tarps or anything else that will provide good cover, please come join us! We'll be there by around 6:00 or so.

    July 4, 2013

    • Marilyn R.

      It's cancelled. I think some are planning to meet at the park at 6. I can come there at 6. I think Dorothy is planning on going to the park too.

      July 4, 2013

  • Dorothy

    I made it downtown from Franklin. Guess I'll head back. Will there be refunds?

    1 · July 4, 2013

  • Olga

    Kelly has posted that both picnic and bus are cancelled. A few of us would still like to meet somewhere downtown to watch the fireworks. Any suggestions as to a good place? Hops & Crafts sounds interesting. Hopefully we will find something by tonight.

    July 4, 2013

    • Liz

      July 4, 2013

    • Liz

      I don't know if picnic is canceled haven't heard anything

      July 4, 2013

  • Liz

    July 4, 2013

    Recommended back up plan - Hops & Crafts is the new beer tasting garden in the gulch (next to turnip truck) and today is it's grand opening. I'm going to go down there around 5:30 - 6 for a beer sampling and if weather clears will be close enough to peek at the fireworks. Feel free to join me

    July 4, 2013

  • Dorothy

    Has the picnic been canceled?

    July 4, 2013

  • Liz

    I'm wondering the same thing will there be back up plans

    July 4, 2013

  • Wendy

    also didn't realize it looks like the bus is open on top...

    July 4, 2013

  • Olga

    I read that the 4th celebrations will still go on even in rain. If bus ride is cancelled any backup plans for those who want to attend fireworks? Are we still meeting at Batter's Box?

    July 4, 2013

  • Allan M.

    Darn, looks like I have to send the breakdancers back home!

    July 4, 2013

  • Julie

    If there's a rain out will there be refunds?

    July 4, 2013

  • Julie

    Will this be cancelled if we are rained out?

    July 3, 2013

  • Kurt A.

    Hey all... just a suggestion that you might want to bring along a rain poncho or at least an umbrella. The 4th celebration is a rain or shine event, and so is the bus... :)

    2 · July 3, 2013

  • Allison A.

    Kathleen I'm going to give up my 2 seats on the bus if you want one.

    July 2, 2013

    • Kathleen

      I'd love one if it is still available, but there is quite a wait list and i think i'm at the bottom of the totem pole.

      July 2, 2013

    • Kathleen

      But if still available then please let me know details to make the swap and payment (if not to the bus company). Thanks!!

      July 2, 2013

  • Stacy C.

    I'm going to be cycling from park and back ... Who all will be cycling??

    July 1, 2013

    • Kathleen

      It sounds like an accident waiting to happen and I was seriously considering it, but I would also like to take a lawn chair and drinks soI think that option is out.

      July 2, 2013

    • Kathleen

      But just noticed that the bus is full already so I might cycling as well. I don't know the route so would really like to connect up with anyone who is riding a bike.

      July 2, 2013

  • Doug

    I might need to drop off the bus ride. Anyone on the wait-list wanna take my spot for the cost of the event?

    July 1, 2013

    • Doug

      Do you have a PayPal account?

      July 1, 2013

    • Sandy J.

      Yes, I haven't used it in a while. But don't think they closed it. Just call me later. Thanks Sandy

    Is someone putting the hate on dogs? My cousin's Great Dane is lovey dovey buddy!

    June 29, 2013

    • Kelly S.

      Dogs are fine for the picnic, just not the bus. But you don't want to leave your dog in your car to go downtown on the bus.

      July 1, 2013

      Your cousin's Great Dane could probably pull the bus...

      July 1, 2013

  • Toomie

    Starting to look forward to this!

    Live music will be performed by The Band Perry and Keb’ Mo’. Then, the Nashville Symphony will play alongside an impressive fireworks show to cap off the night.

    July 1, 2013

  • Linda J.

    Kelly, loved the salsa that was sold at the picnic in may. Just finished it tonight - can they come to 4th of July event to sell or can we get information on where it is sold locally to buy. Now that I've had it nothing else seems to compare!!!

    June 27, 2013

    • Kelly S.

      Linda, do you remember which flavor you had?

      June 28, 2013

    • Kelly S.

      Linda, email Mike Stevenson at [masked] to arrange to get more hot sauce. It's the best, no!?

      June 28, 2013

  • Kelly S.

    Just a reminder there are no refunds for cancellations after this point. If you can't make it, there are several members on the waitlist who will gladly take your spot. Be sure to read the "what to bring and what not to bring" above.
