Winners will receive chairs which will be placed in a special viewing area for the fireworks show on July 4th.

The folding chairs are donated by  Academy Sports & Outdoors.  People must use #academyviewingarea in the  response.

The day of celebration runs from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. and includes a parade and fireworks at night. The fireworks usually start around 9:30, but there may be changes due to email.
