'16 Independence Day Celebration & Fireworks Spectacular 
Thurs., June 30th starting at 6 pm!
There will be lots of fun for the whole family on the front lawn of Montgomery High School on June 30th when Montgomery holds its annual Independence Day Celebration! 

Starting at 6 pm there will be games, entertainment, and vendors including grilled foods, drinks, and the ever-popular kettle corn and funnel cakes. Get there early to get a great picnic spot under the stars!  

Feel free to bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the sounds of a popular music band, "Just Duet - with Friends" playing at 7:00 pm on the mobile stage. After the playing of the Star Spangled Banner, at dusk (approx. 9:15 pm), get ready for a spectacular display of patriotic fireworks, sure to bring out the kid in everyone!

This event is funded by contributions from corporations, small business leaders, individual citizens, and fees from high quality vendors and non - profit organizations.  The event rain date is set for Thursday, July 7th.

Mayor Patricia Graham commented, "As always, this is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together, honor the nation, and enjoy a night out with our families and friends.  Please mark your calendars."
