Three separate events Saturday in Richmond Hill will help people get an early start on the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

The day begins with “Star Spangled Cars and Coffee” at the Richmond Hill History Museum. Cars and Coffee is held on the first Saturday of the month from 9 to 11 a.m. to showcase unique, rare and antique cars. Admission is free and coffee from Espresso Hill is 25 cents with a $1 donation to the museum.

Fort McAllister’s celebration goes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature living history with Civil War drills and rifle and cannon firings. Visitors can also participate in old fashioned games including sack races, an egg toss and a Civil War-era baseball game. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for youth.

The city’s Red, White and Blue celebration at J.F. Gregory Park goes from 5 to 9:30 p.m. with music, vendors, arts and crafts and an inflatable water slide. State Rep. Ron Stephens, R-Savannah, and Congressman Buddy Carter, R-Ga., will speak at 6 p.m. The evening will end with fireworks.

Pembroke’s annual picnic and concert with the 3rd Infantry Division Band from Fort Stewart, which in the past was privately sponsored, is not scheduled for this year.
