“We wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July from the Jewel of South Carolina! Since the beginning, we have carried the tradition of hosting the fireworks show on the Saturday before the 4th of July. We know families like to plan their parties, vacations, and reunions during this time and it also helps keep the event consistent each year as we join together to celebrate our nation’s independence,” stated Miriam Atria, President/CEO of CCLMC.
