The 4th of July is coming up and this year there are no mandates on the numbers of people gathered, though many still plan to be cautious. Here is a list of some of the bigger fireworks celebrations scheduled for the holiday weekend.
Not all celebrations are happening on July 4th or even that weekend, and some events are still being planned, so we will be updating when we get more info to add.
Nashville Arkansas has a big celebration planned for the weekend before on Saturday, June 26. It’s the “Nashville AR Stand Up for America“, there will be lots of activities and events well worth the $5 entry fee.
As the holiday weekend rolls around…

A couple that we really haven’t been able to get any concrete word on is Shreveport’s “Rockets Over the Red” and Texarkana’s “Sparks in the Park”.
With those events off the books at the moment we automatically think of all of the folks that will be able to get together in their neighborhoods for their own group “shows”. Please keep in mind your neighbor’s pets, and combat veterans that may be struggling with PTSD, and make sure all are aware that you will be setting off fireworks, especially those giant mortar rounds.
