The Athens Fabulous Fourth celebration will be held on July 3rd and July 4th, 2017. Local Lions Clubs are working together with the City of Athens, the Athens County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Athens Chamber of Commerce to plan this event for the enjoyment of the residents of Athens County.

The activities will begin on July 3rd with a custom car cruise-in at the Athens City Community Center from 5:30 to 9:00 PM, and a senior queen (over 55) pageant followed by the fantastic fireworks display at 10:00 PM.

On July 4th we will hold the Fabulous Fourth Parade beginning near the Ohio University main gate, proceeding through downtown Athens, and ending near the Athens Public Library. The parade will start at 9:30 AM and we urge everyone to put a vehicle, float, or walking unit in the parade to show your community support and what you or your group can provide for the Athens area. To Ohio Valley Museum of Discovery will also hold a 5k run/walk open to everyone starting at the Athens Community Center at 8:00 AM.
