A fun and safe July 4 celebration
Tyler County Booster - July 2009
Every year a lot of folks are needlessly injured enjoying July 4 with fireworks. While they are fun to shoot, they are not toys, so please treat them with the respect they deserve and don’t become a statistic. The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend an event that features a professional fireworks show, and there are several opportunties to do just that in Tyler County this year! Wildwood Civic Club is sponsoring an “Old Glory” Celebration July 3 and 4 in Wildwood. Wildwood is located 30 miles south of Woodville just off Hwy. 69.
They will have a fish fry Friday night from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. and a cantata titled “The Spirit of America” at 8 p.m. Saturday festivities begin at 9 a.m. The fireworks display begins at 9 p.m. The Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas is holding a music festival and firework display Friday, July 3, beginning at 5 p.m. The event will be held in front of the Administration Office on State Park Road 56. Admission is free. And, of course, Heritage Village in Woodville will hold their Old Fashioned Fourth of July Picnic at Heritage Village on July 4.
Their fireworks display will begin at 9 p.m. And this event is also free. Don’t miss these opportunities to take the family out for some July 4 fun and a safe venue to enjoy fireworks. And remember that if you choose to do your own fireworks show at home, vegetation is very dry right now, so please be careful where you light them and where they land.
