Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta will give children the chance to make their own American flags and decorate funglasses to wear at the firework show that night at Centennial Park. Take your children to the museum at the beginning of the day so you and the adults can celebrate later. There is no age limit plus all children under 2 are free and general admission for adults. Since the museum is located downtown, a stop at the World of Coke can be added to the day’s festivities as well!
