Let Freedom Ring Ceremony

July 4th at 2 pm
Old Fayette County Courthouse Square, Fayetteville, Georgia
During this short but inspiring ceremony, the names of the original thirteen states are read and bells are rung to honor the men who risked their lives by signing the Declaration of Independence. This event was begun by the Marquis de Lafayette Chapter Sons of the American Revolution several years ago and has become a Fayetteville tradition. This year, the James Waldrop Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution of Fayetteville will partner with them and hand out American flags to attendees. The ceremony only lasts about twenty minutes, so plan that barbecue for 3:00 and bring the family to this meaningful event to honor our country's birthday and the men who brought it about.
