The view from BBQ Hill

The Jack Daniel Visitor Center will host Jack’s Independence Day Bash on Saturday, July 7, at its open-air pavilion on Barbecue Hill at 12 p.m.

The pavilion on Barbecue Hill offers a view of the Jack Daniel’s Hollow and the town of Lynchburg. And it’s tailor-made for great southern cooking and old-fashioned fun. Shuttle bus service is included and leaves from the Visitor Center.

“If there was one thing that Jack Daniel was known for almost as much as making Tennessee Whiskey, it was entertaining,” says Jack Daniel Distillery Visitor’s Center Director Steve May. “In addition to great food, we will have entertainment and activities that the whole family can enjoy.”

Jack’s Independence Day Bash meal features fried chicken, sides straight from your grandmother’s Sunday table, and their legendary cornbread. And, if you’ve saved room for dessert, you can enjoy a slice or two of their Lynchburg special pie along with a glass of sweet tea. Local artists will provide live music and guests can enjoy games such as shuffleboard, horseshoes and bung toss. Each guest will receive a branded bung. There will also be door prizes given away during the bash.

Because Jack’s Independence Day Bash is open to all ages, no alcohol is served. The cost for lunch is $35 for adults and $15 for children ages four to 11; children ages three and under eat free. Call 759-6319 for more information. Registration be-gins at 10 a.m.
