Portion Of Plaza Parking, Downtown Streets To Be Closed Saturday During Independence Day Celebration, Fireworks

As Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County residents begin filling downtown Saturday evening, motorists are reminded a portion of plaza parking will be closed Saturday. The 2021 Independence Concert and Fireworks Celebration kicks off at 8 p.m. Visitors to the downtown area should take into account the higher volume of foot traffic to Celebration Plaza.

“Due to the safety zone needed for the fireworks display, some parking around the plaza will be closed,” Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jason Ricketson said, adding that some streets will also be closed July 3, and some areas will be closed to pedestrian traffic starting about 30 minutes before the fireworks show kicks off.

The diagram below, provided by SSPD, shows the safety zone shaded in red and arrows indicating roadways that will be closed July 3. Pedestrian traffic will be allowed in the shaded area until approximately 8:30 p.m. Saturday, then, closed for the fireworks show. Due to the road closures, Ricketson asks visitors to and through the downtown area to plan accordingly.

The Independence Day Celebration is free to the public, will feature a concert performed by Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra starting at 8 p.m., followed at approximately 9 p.m. by a fireworks display. KSST will be broadcasting live from downtown. Click here for more information about the 29th annual 4th of July celebration.
