Get Ready for Boomsday

By Linda Tancs

Knoxville, Tennessee, has been voted one of the top 20 vacation destinations in the United States.  Located on the banks of the Tennessee River, the charming city is steeped in history, home to seven homes from the Civil War and the First Frontier.  And speaking of the Civil War, here you’ll find a collection on Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, first admiral of the U.S. Navy and Civil War hero, at the Farragut Folklife Museum.  But arguably the city’s greatest attraction is Boomsday, heralded as the largest Labor Day fireworks celebration in the country.  The 25th annual boom fest will take place on 2 September at Volunteer Landing along the Tennessee River in downtown Knoxville from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.  Fireworks will begin around 9:30.  Admission is free, with only a nominal charge for food, drinks and games.  Now that’s something to celebrate.
