There are many events being held in Logan County this coming weekend to celebrate the 4th of July. From fireworks to car shows and the annual Kiddie Parade, our community will gather together for family fun on our country’s birthday.
One of the newest events is the Hinton family’s “Thunder Over Lewisburg” fireworks show. This event is being held in memory of Lexi Forgy, the little angel that touched the life of so many people.
Clacy White has been working hard to have the best fireworks show ever to be shot in Logan County. Clacy is the grandson of the late Clacy and Maxine Hinton of Lewisburg. He is carrying on his grandfather’s tradition and making it even bigger to share with Logan Countians and whoever wants to come out and enjoy our country’s birth.
“My daddy loved the 4th of July. It was his favorite holiday. It was a time where family and friends could come together and spend time with one another,” said Sherri Hinton White, young Clacy’s mom and daughter of Clacy and Maxine.
The fireworks will be shot on the Hinton property located behind the Lewisburg Park on Saturday, July 4th beginning at 4 p.m. Those who want to watch the fireworks and enjoy other activities will meet at the Lewisburg Park.
Susan Porter has been in charge of getting vendors and other activities on that evening. Buddy Wooldridge will be grilling and Chaney’s Dairy Barn will be on hand to sell their delicious ice cream. Corn hole boards will be set up for play as well.
The event is free. There will be no alcohol or drugs allowed and the Hintons’ and Whites’ are not responsible for any accidents. Organizers of the event would like to thank all of their sponsors for donating funds to make this event possible.
Other events this year include a fireworks show in Adairville, which will be held at the Red River Fish & Game Habitat.
Located just two blocks east of the town square, the doors will open at 5 p.m. The cost is only $5 per car load of people. There will be music, food at a low cost, door prizes, lots of fun and a large fireworks display. The event is open to the public and all are welcome.
In Russellville on Saturday there will be the traditional Kiddie Parade at 10 a.m., which will be followed by a Fourth of July ceremony on the square.
