The fun filled, family-friendly atmosphere attracts everyone who lives in Newton County. It is the most exciting way to celebrate our country’s independence as a community!
This year the Independence on the Square festivities will begin at noon on Saturday, July 4th right in downtown Covington! There will be plenty of food available along with a great atmosphere that your kids can run around and play in; they’ll need to burn off the extra energy from the yummy sweets and barbeque favorites that will be surrounding the square all day.
