South Plains to celebrate Independence Day with surplus of fireworks

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The 4th of July is only two days away, and many cities around Lubbock are planning celebrations for Independence Day.

Within the city of Lubbock the biggest event will be '4th on Broadway,' which will begin Tuesday night at 7:30 with the Street Dance. On Wednesday, traditional celebrations will resume with the parade, street fair, picnic in the park and fireworks extravaganza at dark.

The Lubbock Country Club is also having a fireworks show on the 4th. It will start 15 to 20 minutes before the Mackenzie Park show on Wednesday and will last about 30 minutes this year. However, the show is for members and their guests only and no other spectators will be allowed inside the club to watch.

Buffalo Springs Lake will have its fireworks display on Tuesday night at 10pm. Prices will be the same as they are normally for entry ($6 for adults, $3 for kids 6-11, $2  for seniors, and free for kids under 5 and active military.) Food and drinks will be available but guests are encouraged to bring their own as well.

Every place that we talked to today told us that because they have been unable to shoot off fireworks the past two years, the display in 2012 will be better and longer than usual, in essence giving spectators more bang for their buck. There is a chance that some of the stored fireworks could be duds, but cities promised whatever can be shot will be shot.

Other cities having events include Post, which will have a fireworks show at dark; Slaton, which will have an event at city park from 10am to 3 pm; Plainview, which will have a fireworks display at 9:45 p.m.; and Roaring Springs, which will have a parade at 10:30am, dog show at 2:00pm and fire department sponsored brisket dinner at 6:00pm and costs $7.50 a plate.
