Use this nifty map to find the best spot to watch the fireworks
The Milledgeville city government's fireworks display is all set for Saturday, July 2.
The place: Central Georgia Technical College
The time: "dark"
For several decades, the fireworks were shot off from the Milledgeville Mall parking lot. At some point, however, organizers realized that CGTC was hillier and more elevated, thus making for better viewing for a greater part of Milledgeville.
Below is a trusty map of the most primo spots to stake out during this year's fireworks:
The fireworks celebration has been hit-or-miss in the last 15 years. First came the Great Recession, when the celebration was canceled for several years in a row "due to lack of funding." Then came the COVID pandemic, which caused the cancellation of the fireworks in 2020 and 2021.
Now, however, the fireworks are back for a second straight year.
