  1. THE best fireworks in the area. Great job, again, Kennesaw. We saw them for the first time last year and decided Kennesaw puts on the very best show around. It was the only show we went to this year.

  2. Always enjoyed the fireworks but won’t go anymore because your not allowed to have alcohol anymore. I will just go to Marietta or somewhere else. Sad day as this really had one of the best celebrations around. I’m just sick and tired of these righteous people regulating what responsible people should be able to do. If I was a sponsor I would be raising stink about this rule. Marietta holds concerts every month during the summer and they can handle it. When will Kennesaw ever get out of regulating their righteous views. Oh well there loss Marietta’s gain!

    • There are so many places where people can choose to go and “celebrate” with alcohol, etc. Thank goodness there is a remaining place where some (who prefer to celebrate without alcohol) may gather together and enjoy a holiday. By the way, the correct spelling is “their” in that context (their loss). Of course, it depends on one’s perspective. Many additional families will choose Kennesaw because the event is alcohol free.

  3. Really wish you’d do these shows on the fourth so I didn’t have to miss it every year. Lets celebrate Christmas on the 24th this year, right?

  4. I would love to be a face painter vendor for your Salute to America in Kennesaw. Please send a link for an application
