The Mike Love & Associates, City Of Lufkin Fireworks Extravaganza is Monday July 4th at Ellen Trout Park.  The Zoo Opens at 9am as usual, and things start hopping after that in the park.  There will be lots vendors from all over the state with plenty of drinks and food.  Six live bands on the main stage starting at 3pm.  Kids Activities like the bounce house, giant water slide to cool off and lots more.  The Amazing Turtle Race from Angelina Beautiful Clean will start at 4pm so get there early and get your turtle.  I think the "Snap Pack" is a great deal for only 20 bucks.  Call Amanda Anderson for more details at 63-CLEAN.

There is a Shuttle starting at  5pm from the Lufkin High School, that makes parking and getting back to your car a breeze if you want to catch the fireworks.   That of course is the main reason for being there!  Fireworks!  This will be the biggest display for at least 60 miles around.  Mike Love & Associates have spared no expense celebrating our nations independence this year or any other, so you know it' s going to be a great show.  Gets dark right around 9:15 and the show will last an amazing 25 min this year.   Lots of beautiful fireworks high in the sky.

Last night Mike Love and I worked late into the night to put together some new segments of music for this years fireworks display.  Many people work hard behind the scenes for months on this event.  We have meetings starting in January, all the way up to last week.  The Lufkin Parks & Recreation Dept, Lufkin Fire Dept, Police Dept, Zoo , L.I.S.D Transportation,  K=Fox 955, and Mike Love & Associates work very hard to make this happen.  I would like to thank them for all there hard work !  You can't purchase fireworks this year, so this is the best way to see a great firework display.  So bring your lawn chair, quilt and some sunscreen and join us at the park!
