Land Between the Lakes - LBLLand Between the Lakes, KY/TN – The public is invited to a traditional community celebration of America’s birthday at the Homeplace 1850s Working Farm, from 1:00pm-4:00pm, Tuesday, July 4th, 2017. Admission is $5.00 ages 13 and up; $3.00 ages 5 -12; free for ages 4 and under.

“Raising the 30 star flag from 1850 and reading the Declaration of Independence together are a moving way to remember why we still celebrate today,” says Homeplace Interpreter Kira Sanscrainte.

“We are also planning a special finish, called “Sounds of the Fourth,” with patriotic toasts (lemonade provided), songs, bells and more. Help us bring the afternoon to a rousing close,” stated Sanscrainte.

Weather permitting, there will also be a launch of a small hot air or “smoke” balloon.

Visitors can take part in competitive games and making ice cream. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and picnic lunches while listening to traditional old-time music.

The Homeplace 1850s Working Farm recreates the lifestyle of a two-generation family of the region. Visitors mingle with interpreters wearing period attire going about their daily chores. Artifacts, restored historic structures and traditional seasonal activities take visitors back-in-time to relive history before the American Civil War.
