LIVINGSTON — Organizers for the Red White & Blue parade, Onalaska Fireworks show and Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas Music Festival and Fireworks Display are all finalizing details for their Independence Day celebrations. The parade through downtown Livingston will follow a slightly different route this year, according to Main Street Manager Bob Zeigler. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 3, on Washington Street at Feagin and proceed south on Washington (Business 59) to Polk St. turn east onto Tyler St. at the Fain Theatre, ending at Sherman Street. Participants can begin staging at 9 a.m. on Sherman and Feagin streets. Call the Main Street office at 936-327- 1050 for more information. The holiday weekend celebration continues at the Alabama-Couthatta Music Festival and Fireworks Display from at 4 p.m. to midnight Saturday at the parking lot of the Cultural Center. Country, R&B, 70s and gospel music is planned throughout the afternoon. Admission is free but seating is limited so lawn chairs or blankets are encouraged. On Sunday, July 4, the 34th Annual Fireworks Display in Onalaska will be held at Kickapoo Creek. Viewing will be at the Waterfront Lodge on Navaho Trail. The fireworks display will begin shortly after 9 p.m. for optimal viewing. Boat viewing will be from the north side of the Kickapoo Creek bridge. Boaters are encouraged to arrive early and use caution due to the shallow depth and stumps at water level on both sides of Kickapoo Creek. The creek channel will be lighted to aid with navigation. Whether it’s parades or fireworks you enjoy on the weekend, there are plenty of activities for safe family fun and entertainment.
