The Museum of Appalachia celebrates Independence Day by launching a gunpowder-filled anvil high into the sky. “Anvil shooting” was once a common way for pioneers to celebrate special events.
Anvil shoot times and event pricing TBA.
The anvil shoot is the centerpiece of a celebration that includes a bell-ringing ceremony, flag procession, old-fashioned games, music, and demonstrations from blacksmiths, beekeepers, patriotic re-enactors, and woodworkers. The Museum is also hosting a pie-baking contest; registration information and other details can be found at museumofappalachia.org.
