Independence Day Symphony in Celebration Plaza.
Independence Day is celebrated with old-fashioned style. At dusk, in July, on the Saturday before the 4th, people with lawn chairs gather on downtown Heritage Square. Hotdogs and lemonade add the perfect spice to a concert of marches and patriotic tunes provided by the northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra. When darkness falls, the sky erupts in a blaze of colors as fireworks explode above historic Hopkins County Courthouse. Join us for this “Norman Rockwell” evening. Call (903) 885-6515 for details.
