HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — A yearly tradition in the Circle City is officially ready to snap, crackle, and pop!
‘Fireworks at the Fairgrounds’ will be held on July 2nd with gates set to open at 5:00 p.m. Officials tell WDHN the grand firework show is expected to start around 9:00 p.m.
The event is free, however, a $10 parking donation is required. All collected proceeds will go towards the Wiregrass United Way. Last Fourth of July’s Firework Show almost $40,000 was raised.
During their commission meeting, Dothan City Commissioners approved the fireworks for the show, making way for an evening full of live music, vendors, and a car show.
Organizers say non-profits and vendor booths are free and if you would like to sign up to register to set up for the event, you can do so online.
“It’s always a great event, it’s very all attended by the county and the Wiregrass region,” Dothan Mayor Mark Saliba said. “People come from all over to watch the fireworks display. It’s a great venue to do that at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds.”
Organizers will be handing out free watermelon slices, boiled peanuts, and hand flags before the grand firework show.
