East Brewton's Fourth of July celebration has become a tradition that goes far beyond fireworks and hotdogs.
The day-long festivities will be held on Monday, July 5 this year, beginning with a spades tournament at 9 a.m. at the East Brewton Civic Center. Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to play bingo and horseshoes, listen to live bands and singers, and more.
One unique tradition is the duck race down Murder Creek, which also serves as a fundraiser for the annual fireworks display.
The fireworks will begin at 10 p.m. For those nervous about setting their own fireworks, or those attracted to the grand power of a professional fireworks show, East Brewton's celebration at Fort Crawford Park offers safe entertainment to everyone in the area.
An event like this doesn't come together without months of investment from some of East Brewton's dedicated citizens. East Brewton's Fourth of July committee was made up this year by Mike and Mary Jean Goolsby, Steve and Sherry Dunaway, Joey and Gwynn Shell, Danny Howard, Mayor Terry Clark, Donny and Ava Crutchfield, Todd and Linda Williamson and Mike and Pam Driskell. Undoubtedly, countless others contributed to their planning to make Monday's celebration possible.
Take some time to celebrate the Fourth with the people of East Brewton and Brewton -- there will be plenty to enjoy.
