Don't miss Hopewell's annual Independence Day Celebration on the Appomattox River! The event is always held on the Saturday before July 4. A dazzling fireworks display will be fired from a barge on the river. The display is best viewed from John Randolph Medical Center, the Hopewell Riverwalk, the Hopewell City Marina, and City Park. Much of the display will be visible from points in historic downtown Hopewell also.
