Adding another element to create the spectacular Sparks in the City will be the fireworks show aligned with music, which will be available to tune into at KBEC 1390AM/99.1FM.

“I am beyond appreciative for Praise Fellowship Baptist Church and Padian Properties for their partnership in allowing the City to put on a spectacular 4th of July celebration for all to enjoy,” Mayor Petta added.
