Museum of Appalachia: 4th of July Celebration

Come celebrate our national independence the old-fashioned way, with patriotic ceremonies, old-time music, pioneer demonstrations, and the highlight of the day, the ever-dramatic anvil shoot: Several times during the day, the hunk of iron bursts from a cloud of smoke, sometimes catapulted as high as the treetops. The deafening boom, it is said, can be heard 15 miles away.

Other sights and sounds of an old-fashioned Independence Day include authentic old-time music, patriotic speeches and a bell-ringing ceremony, the aroma of freshly split cedar logs, the whine of the tractor-powered circular saw-mill, and tasty summertime culinary treats.
