Stone Mountain Park also hosted its popular show, but not without a traffic problem. The park had to close its entrance gate more than four hours before the main event after they rain out of space.

Thousands of people in Marietta also celebrated with a parade.

"I love that we have freedom to make our own choices," Clayton Goode, a young parade goer said.

"It's when America got its independence," Hunter Goode, another young parade goer said.

Veterans joined the parade in military jeeps. People thanked the veterans for their service.

The festivities then moved to Glover Park where people enjoyed carnival games, museum tours and food.
