Texoma Towns Get Ready for Annual Firework Displays

TEXOMA -- Most Americans enjoy celebrating our nation's independence with a visit to a local fireworks display.

Sherman shoots off their festivities a little early, Thursday, July 3rd, at Pecan Grove West Park.

"We're going to have several bounces houses that will be available for the kids. A $5 wristband gets them all the activities that they can do until 9:15 that evening," says Theresa Hutchinson, Sherman's Recreation Manager.

There will also be live music from the Texas Gypsies band and the fireworks are expected to start about 9:30pm.

"Its just a fun event for the whole community to come out and enjoy some free live music and some free fireworks and enjoy this beautiful park," says Tammy Davis, the Support Services Manager for the City of Sherman.

Denison will be hosting its annual firework display for the 27th year on the actual holiday July 4th.

"Its really quite the tradition and so we try and enhance it some way whether its packing more in or having special entertainment or whatever so each year we just try and out do ourselves," says Donna Dow, the City of Denison's Main Street Director.

Dow says there will be a few changes though this year due to the construction at Munsun stadium.

"At Forest Park is where we will be headquartering everything and normally we are inside the stadium but due to the construction we are just going to let them finish that up and have it in forest park this year."
