A Fourth of July celebration starts today at Horse Pens 40 and runs through Monday.

Horse Pens 40 owner Howard Schultz said he and his family are hosting a weekend of camping, music and family fun at a cost of only $5 for the day.

Performing on stage will be Lewis Shaeffer, the former Marine, who recently reminded America that there is more than one verse to “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

On June 9, Shaeffer sang the fourth verse (which makes mention of God) for the first time in Douglasville Ga. He then sang it to America when he was invited to appear on Fox & Friends.

“We are fortunate to have him sing on Saturday, and he is also going to speak on Matthew 24,” said Schultz.

On Friday, the Jammin’ with Camp Meeting begins at 5 p.m. Karaoke with Roy Moon at the pavilion also starts at 5 p.m.

Saturday’s lineup has a devotion by the Rev. Joe Stephenson and a speech by state Sen. Hank Erwin.

Camp Meeting will again bring music, and the Trust Jesus Singers will perform.

Others who will participate in the weekend event include Tom Barnes and Larry Riddle. A children’s program also will be presented.

“There will be campsite jamming, activities for the kids, vendors, and fun and games,” Schultz said. “If you’re looking for a place to take the family (kids under 12 get in free with parent) this is a great way to have a lot of fun.”
