Reserve a campsite in advance so you can show your patriotic colors for this 4th of July campsite decoration contest, judged both in daylight and dark. Additional judging considerations will be patriotic appropriateness, originality and attractiveness. Electric lights are permitted but not required for entry. Campers need to complete decorations by 6 P.M. on Saturday and remove them before vacating the campsite. In addition there will be a variety of programs offered over the holiday weekend. Fabulous prizes will include free camping at a future date! There will also be special 4th of July park programs throughout the weekend. For information on what park programs will be available look under â€˜Plan Your Visitâ€™ on the Tennessee State Park web site: http://www.tn.gov/environment/parks/EdgarEvins/ You may also visit the Friends of Edgar Evins State Park website at http://foeesp.alturl.com or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/friendsofeesp CONTEST RULES: All decorations must be kid friendly, non-offensive, and 4th of July patriotic themed. Contest participants must be registered camping guests of Edgar Evins State Park. Nothing can be attached to the campsite that might damage it, and it must be easily removed and completely removed upon guest departure.
