As usual, the City of Brundidge will get the 4th of July 2022 celebrations off to an early start with a SummerFest BANG!
The Brundidge Business Association’s Independence Day celebrations and SummerFest begin Saturday at 9:00 am with the Independence Day Parade and conclude with the city’s inaugural fireworks display at dusk at Bulldog Stadium.
All day long there will be entertainment, arts and crafts, feasts and activities on the grounds of the historic Bass House on South Main Street.
Brundidge City Manager Willie Wright said the city’s first fireworks show is creating a lot of excitement across the city.
“The fireworks show is new to the city and we hope it will be a regular part of our Independence Day and Summerfest celebrations,” Wright said.
Everyone is invited to come and enjoy all of the activities that will take place centrally in the Bass House grounds and Knox Ryals Pavilion.
“The full day of activities will culminate with the fireworks show at Bulldog Stadium,” Wright said. “The Bulldog Stadium gate opens at 6:45 p.m. and that will be a great place to sit and watch the show. The fireworks will be launched from “the hole” so the show should be viewable from almost anywhere in the city.”
Wright said the fireworks will begin once the skies darken and provide the backdrop for the show.
“The City of Brundidge Fireworks Show is made possible through the generosity of our sponsors,” said Wright. “Thank you to all of our sponsors who helped make the fireworks show possible.”
