Museum of Appalachia Independence Day Anvil Shoot

July 4

WBY returns to the Museum of Appalachia, one of our area’s greatest Appalachian treasures! Celebrate the holiday with our authentic roots music in a set from 12:10-1:00pm, and mark the occasion with an old- fashioned “anvil shoot”. Every 4th of July, the Museum uses gunpowder to launch a 200-pound anvil hundreds of feet into the air! It’s a tradition that MOA has kept alive for nearly 30-year tradition, striving to keep history alive for a 21st century audience.
Anvil shoots will occur at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm.
Other activities at the all-day celebration include a national bell-ringing ceremony, flag procession, southern food, and demonstrations from blacksmiths, beekeepers, dulcimer makers, spinners, weavers, rail splitters, and more.
Family tickets are discounted to $35 for a limited time! Get your tickets today. More info: www.museumofappalachia.org
