The Museum of Appalachia celebrates Independence Day by launching a gunpowder-filled anvil high into the sky. “Anvil shooting” was once a common way for pioneers to celebrate special events. Before there were fireworks, shooting the anvil was a common way for pioneers to celebrate special events. Local blacksmiths would practice this tradition to celebrate the nation’s Independence, Christmas, and even Davy Crockett’s election to the U.S. Congress.This celebration also features a variety of other activities, including live music and patriotic demonstrations.
