An even bigger and better fireworks display is in store for everyone

Your special invitation to attend is from Bank President Tom Sellers of Alliance Bank, Paul Harvey, CEO of CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital, Mickey McKenzie, President of Grocery Supply Inc and the Board of Directors of the Northeast Texas Symphony League. Bring your family and neighbors, and your lawn chairs, and don’t miss the most dazzling heart-stirring community event of the year that’s totally free to attend! Following a Veteran’s Parade onto the town square at 8pm, the Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra will begin a program of stirring patriotic selections that are real crowd pleasers! During the evening, sign up at the KSST tent to win a deluxe flag kit, and stay for darkness to fall when the fireworks begin! For people who love Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County, there’s nothing more memorable than seeing Old Glory wave in the breeze as fireworks explode in colorful starbursts above the courthouse and the Sulphur Springs city skyline. The memories you make can last a lifetime!

Be aware that there may be some areas near the northeast corner of the square which are blocked from vehicle parking, due to close proximity to the fireworks detonation area. For safety reasons, these no-parking and no-standing zones have been designated. Your cooperation is appreciated by organizers of the event. Thanks go out to all the volunteers, the local event sponsors and the musicians as well as the Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors.
