“We began this holiday tradition in 1989.  This event has gained regional, statewide and national attention as South Carolina’s largest patriotic event and fireworks show.  Come join us on July 4th to celebrate our nation’s birthday, stated Miriam Atria, President/CEO, Capital City/Lake Murray Country Regional Tourism Board.  We are sad to say, due to current pandemic conditions, license, permits and other requirement we will not be holding the annual boat parade this year.”
