With a statewide burn ban in effect, many municipalities are concerned over plans to celebrate the July 4 holiday.
An annual celebration in East Brewton, which includes fireworks, is moving ahead with traditional plans.
East Brewton Mayor Terry Clark said the city still intends to have fireworks at Fort Crawford on that day.
“As of right now, we haven’t gotten the permit yet, but I see no problems in obtaining it,” Clark said. “We plan on having fireworks on July 4, and until we find out any different, we are proceeding with the plans. We have had several showers in the last few days and things are not as dry as they were.”
According to Clark, the celebration of the Fourth of July will go on as planned and fireworks will be a part of that celebration.
“If something comes up to change the fireworks plan, we will let everyone know,” Clark said. “And the rest of the plans for the day will still go on. We will have music and entertainment, the duck race, horseshoe contests and Spades games. But as for right now, we plan to have a great fireworks display at 9:30 p.m.”
The day will begin with the Spades tournament at 9 a.m. Fort Crawford Park will be open for families to come out, cook and have a good time.
Bingo will start at 1 p.m. and horseshoe contests will be at 4 p.m. Music and entertainment will begin a 5 p.m. with Kerri McCall, followed by Lois Crenshaw at 5:30 p.m.; Misty Joyner at 7 p.m.; and Holly Wyatt at 7:30 p.m. The main main entertainment group, High Horse will perform from 8 to 9:30 p.m.
“The duck race will be at 6 p.m. and there are still plenty of ducks for sale,” said East Brewton city clerk, Karen Singleton. “Each duck is $5 and they can be bought at East Brewton City Hall or they can be purchased at the park anytime before the race. First place duck will win $200; second place, $100; and third place, $50. We will also have a concession stand selling hot dogs, hamburgers, drinks, snow cones and lots of the regular items we usually sell.”
The fireworks will begin at 9:30 p.m. and once again promises to be a huge event.
