Unity 4th Celebration

Fireworks will fill the sky this Fourth of July as people across our nation, and citizens here in Jeff Davis County, come together to celebrate the birth of America and the patriotic spirit which has made our country great.   

Everyone is invited to enjoy fireworks and family fun during the third annual Fireworks Celebration at Longleaf Trace Park in Prentiss on the 4th of July from 6 to 9pm.  

Members of “Unity in the Community” are hosting this patriotic event which features local talent, music, kid centered activities and a fireworks show that promises to be the best one yet! 

This year, the entertainment committee for the event wants to provide local veterans and active members of all military branches the opportunity to join together on stage with fellow military branch members and sing the official song of their military branch.  

Words for each military’s branch official song will be provided.  Any interested members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or Marines may contact Joel Hoxie at 504-202-7012 for more details.  

Also this year, Unity in the Community is adding food booths and patriotic sing-a-longs.  

Support from businesses across the county has helped Unity make the upcoming event bigger and better.  

Local citizens who wish to show their support can purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win $500.00 from Unity in the Community during the celebration and the lucky winner will be announced that evening.   

Mark your calendars now and plan to make this Fireworks Celebration part of your 4th of July holiday.  Come enjoy fellowship and fun with family, neighbors, and friends as we Americans join together to honor the country we all call home.
