Lexington’s Annual Fireworks in the Park

by Nancy Perry

Fireworks in the Park is set for the Fourth of July, coordinated by the Lexington Chamber of Commerce and the Lexington Volunteer Fire Department, along with local DJ Bill Tucker. It will be held at

Lexington Memorial Park.

Lexington’s annual Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration honoring our country had to be cancelled last year due to the Burn Ban.

Thankfully, there has been enough rain this year to have the Ban lifted; therefore, plans are being made to celebrate in Lexington Memorial Park on the Fourth.

Members of Lexington’s Volunteer Fire Department will be igniting the fireworks show. They have done a beautiful and efficient job through the years. We look forward to their using their increasing expertise in presenting this annual endeavor.

As everyone gathers, waiting for the sun to set and the sky is dark to get the most benefit from the sparkling fireworks, patriotic music will be provided by local DJ, Bill Tucker, beginning at 7 p.m. from the Pavilion in the Park.

Families are encouraged to take this opportunity to take a picnic to the park, as we gather to wait until dark to enjoy the fireworks show.

Several businesses have generously provided financing to help support this annual event, as well as donation baskets for those in the park to make donations to help cover the cost of the fireworks. Contact has been made with local business to give them the opportunity to donate to this project.

A listing of businesses sponsoring this event will be announced.

If any business or individual would like to help with the cost of the fireworks, please contact Nancy Perry at 979-773-2346, or mail a check to the Lexington Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 562, Lexington, TX 78947.

All money received will be used to cover the cost of the fireworks.

The generosity of businesses and individuals is appreciated as we join with all the folks of our extended community to celebrate.
