Karen’s books have been nominated for numerous national prizes including the SIBA (Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance) Fiction Book of the Year, and she has twice won the National Readers’ Choice Award.

Karen White is the New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty novels, including the Tradd Street series, The Night the Lights Went Out, Flight Patterns, The Sound of Glass, A Long Time Gone, and The Time Between.

FAQS

Where should we park?
You may park at any town building including the Library, Town Hall, Police & Municipal Court, Planning & Utilities and around the town green. Parking is also available at the former West Jackson Primary School and historic gym parking lots on Hwy 53 and Henry Street. We always have a large crowd visit Downtown Braselton to celebrate the 4th. We want everyone to come celebrate but please understand there is limited parking. You will probably have to park and walk. We are building a parking deck but it may not be completed until after the event. Just don't park on the sidewalks so those walking or viewing fireworks are safe!

Can you set up a tent on the Green?
Only vendors can set up tents on the green.

Do vendors take credit cards?
Most do take credit cards, but that is up to the individual vendor. An ATM is located at Northeast GA Bank, 5045 Hwy 53.

What happens if it's raining?
This is a rain or shine event. The parade will happen unless the Braselton Police Chief deems it unsafe. In the case of rain or storms, the fireworks may start earlier or later than expected. But we only cancel if it is unsafe.

Are coolers allowed?
Yes, you can bring your own food and drinks. Please clean up after yourself!

Where are the fireworks being launched from?
Right off Highway 53 between Braselton and Hoschton at the school. There is a large perimeter around the site so Highway 53 is the closest you can get.

How can I be a vendor?
Vendor space for this event is already sold out!
