Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA) announced Peachtree TV as the exclusive broadcast home of the all-new patriotic celebration “Look Up Atlanta” on Sunday, July 3.
Television coverage from Centennial Olympic Park will begin when Look Up Atlanta gates open at 5 p.m. and conclude following the Southeast’s largest fireworks show in the evening.

“We are excited to grow the distribution of our Fourth of July fireworks show for the first time in its 25-year history,” said Frank Poe, GWCCA’s Executive Director. “The partnership with CBS46 and Peachtree TV will broadcast Look Up Atlanta to millions across Georgia and Gray Television stations across the country. We hope this special celebration of Atlanta for Atlantans will honor and inspire pride in our great city.”
“We are more than thrilled to be the broadcast home of Look Up Atlanta,” said Peachtree TV Station Manager Micheal Smith. “Fourth of July is an exciting time for Atlantan’s to come together and celebrate all that makes this city great, and we are excited to have Peachtree TV be the home of this year’s festivities.”
Taking place on Sunday, July 3, “Look Up Atlanta” celebrates all the things that make Atlanta a great city – from its sports teams and attractions to the culturally diverse and celebrated food and arts scene – and returns to the tradition of Fourth of July fireworks at Centennial Olympic Park.
