Let's Go asset

Featured Event: Fireworks

Local businesses are sponsoring the city's traditional fireworks show at Steven Bennett Park—but not on July 4. Wednesday, July 3, is the date of this year's celebration, which is sponsored by All-Star Ford, Ben E. Keith, and Elliott Auto Group. Also, remember to thank city workers, who will be putting on the event.

The show will not start until after 9 p.m., but you'll want to arrive early to get a good parking spot. Call the Palestine Visitor’s Center for more information at 903-731-3014.
