FORT WORTH, Texas – Fort Worth is set to celebrate July 4th with festivities and fireworks on Sunday night.
The organizers of Fort Worth’s Fourth have said it will be the largest fireworks display in North Texas.
The gates will open at 6 p.m. and begin flooding the banks of the Trinity River.
It’s hot, so a main attraction will float in the river to cool off. People will need to bring their own tube to float in Trinidad, but there will be vendors and live music.
The fireworks will start at 9:30 p.m.
The Extreme Pyrotechnics team have been living in the field since Monday, ensuring the show is set up.
They said they had about three tons of explosives ready to go.
Extreme Pyrotechnics president and owner Mike Wagner was with his team on Sunday afternoon to put the finishing touches on.
“This show got bigger and bigger every year. I’ve been doing it for 12 years. I add mystery items. People notice the ones that come every year, the groupies I would call them. They don’t know if they are. want to run to their car or run here and save someone’s life because it’s so intense, “said Wagner.” I can promise you this will be the loudest final they’ve ever had at this show. That’s all I can tell you. “
FOX4News.com will also have a live broadcast of the Fort Worth’s Fourth fireworks.
