This time last year we were feeling the heat here in East Texas with 100-plus degree days. Add to that about 95 percent of the state of Texas was under a burn ban and that put a damper on Fourth of July celebrations.  What a difference a year makes! It’s a bit wetter although just as humid, but we’re able to shoot our fireworks this year (so far at least)!

With the Fourth of July falling on a Wednesday this year, the Dam Fireworks Show at Lake Tyler will be held Saturday, June 30 with the fireworks being shot off after dark.

Plan the family picnic now and bring them out to Concession Park at Lake Tyler and enjoy the show. The best seats in the house won’t be on the shore, but on the water of Lake Tyler!  So, get your boat gassed up, life jackets (gotta have those on the water), friends and a radio.

The fireworks are designed to go off with choreographed music — which our sister station, Mix 93-1, will be playing.

Come on out!
