JULY 4TH  2016 CELEBRATION TO BE HELD SATURDAY, JULY 2ND, 2016 PARADE BEGINS 9:00 A.M. Contact Colbert City Hall for more information. 

 

The men of the Colbert Baptist Church prepares a delicious barbeque each year for July 4th Celebration.  The Colbert Volunteer Fire Department plays a vital role in all the planning and events of the day. This celebration has become one of the largest in Northeast Georgia and could not exist without the many volunteers who work tirelessly in giving their time and efforts to this event. Former Mayor John Waggoner, who now serves as City Advisor, began the Fourth of July Celebration in 1969 when he first became Mayor, together with the Colbert Improvement Club. The Colbert Lion's Club is also very much a part of this event. This year will be Colbert's 46th year of celebrating July 4th with record attendance each year.
