The Fourth of July is Crossnore’s biggest event. Sponsored by the Volunteer Fire Department, it begins with a Parade at 4:00. Hamburgers and hot dogs are for sell by the Fire Department. There is free watermelon for everyone and other goodies are sold for fundraising by the local churches, boy scouts and community groups. Children enjoy games in inflatable play places and an old fashion frog-jumping contest. Live music fills the air and finishes with a street dance at 7:00. At nightfall the firemen put on a fireworks display equal to any other in the area. Experience a BIG EVENT in a SMALL TOWN.
