The Star Spangled Classic was held on June 29, 2019 in downtown Athens, Georgia, to commemorate 243 years of American independence. The streets were filled with vendors including the Lil’ Ice Cream Dude and La Michoacana Es Natural as well as kid friendly activities like face painting and balloon animals. Crowds danced and celebrated as musical acts took on the main stage on Clayton Street. The end of the night ended with the annual firework show that lit up all over Athens.
