Celebrate the Fourth of July 2014 in Ellijay Georgia

Take advantage of the long weekend, and head to the North Georgia Mountains to celebrate the Fourth of July! Downtown Ellijay and The General Store at Eagle Mountain are hosting some sparkling fun and spectacular events while The Villas at Coosawattee is offering some fantastic wallet-friendly cabin rentals. Combine these super extraordinary offers with some cool and refreshing river tubing with the Coosawattee River Tubing Co., and a super memorable Independence Day is all yours!


Downtown Ellijay is hosting a patriotic beach party on July 4th! The party includes a red-white-and-
blue downtown parade, festive games, lively music, craft vendors, and fireworks! The event starts at 3pm. Click here for more information: Patriotic Beach Party in Downtown Ellijay Georgia


Starting at 6pm on July 5th, Pickin' on the Porch in front of The General Store at Eagle Mountain is presenting a special anniversary show with Kharisma and Slickfoot.  Music to your ears, this outdoor music event cannot be missed! The event is free (you can’t beat that!). Bring your own lawn chair, pull up your seat next to the bon-fire, and roast some marshmallows while enjoying the entertainment and mountain ambiance! Regular Pickin' schedule is the 2nd and 4th Saturday during the summer.


A fun-filled 2-1/2 hour inner tube float down the Coosawattee River in the North Georgia Mountains is all yours at the Coosawattee River Tubing Company (706-635-1609). The Coosawattee River Tubing Company furnishes the tube, life vest, and shuttle service to and from the river for a $15 admission price. The Coosawattee River Tubing Company also offers tube tracker trips, which are similar to kayaks but are much easier to maneuver. Each trip lasts 1-1/2 hours and is $20.00 per trip which includes equipment and shuttle to and from the river. Tubing / meal packages and group rates are available.

Although reservations are not mandatory for tubing, trips book fast so availability inquiry and reservation(s) are advised. Reservations are required for tube tracker trips. Please note that children must be at least 48 inches. A waiver must be signed and submitted prior to the tubing excursion. To save time, please read the rules and regulations and then print & sign the waiver prior arriving for the tubing trip.

The tubing season runs through October. The Coosawattee River Tubing Company trip operates Tuesday through Sunday. Trip times are 10am, 11am, 12pm and 1:30pm with a 2:30pm trip on busy weekends.
