Fireworks & music set for July 3 at Blythewood’s Doko Park

BLYTHEWOOD – The Town of Blythewood has a big bash planned in Doko Park for this year’s Independence Day celebration. It’s the family-fun Rockin’ Red White & Blue festival.

“It’s going to happen on Wednesday, July 3 this year,” Mayor Sloan Griffin announced. “And it’s going to be big, with music, fireworks and lots of food trucks.”

Food trucks open at 4 p.m. …15 or 20 of them with a variety of different kinds of entrees, desserts, cold drinks, beer and wine.

The Blue Dogs Band

 Beginning at about 6 p.m., the Blue Dogs band out of Charleston will take the stage.

“It’s a great band, so come out and enjoy the fun, food and music, and visit with your friends and neighbors. Enjoy Blythewood!” Griffin said. “We ask that everyone bring their lawn chairs and pallets for the kids, but no coolers, please.”

Then at dusk, about 9:30 p.m., a fireworks display will light up the night sky over the park.


Parking on hard surfaces in the park will be limited to handicap, vendor and staff parking. All general parking will be located in the field behind town hall and across Sandfield Road. Vehicles will enter through the gate at the corner of Sandfield Road and Langford Road.

Parking and driving will be strictly prohibited on a portion of McLean Road from 4 – 10 p.m. Signs will be posted.
