On Friday, South Spring Baptist Church will host its 12th annual family fireworks celebration for the East Texas community. In addition to the fireworks, South Spring will feature a variety of family activities including inflatables, crafts, playgrounds, food trucks and giveaways.
Chris Legg, senior pastor of South Spring Baptist Church, said it was a highlight of the year for the church.
“This is an amazing opportunity to tell our community how much we love and appreciate them in Jesus’ name,” Legg said. “Plus, it’s a way of saying thank you to everyone who has been willing to serve and protect our God-given freedoms.”
Event guests will be able to enter the property at 6 p.m. through entrance FM 2813 and enjoy the various activities. Guests are encouraged to bring camping chairs and blankets to sit on to watch the show. The fireworks will begin once the sun has set, usually around 9 p.m. The crescendo of fireworks marks the end of the event.
South Spring Baptist Church, 17002 US-69, Tyler, was established in 2017. The property is open to the public and many people frequent the disc golf course and the lake to fish. For more information, visit southspring.org or email [email protected]
