Annual Crossville fireworks show set for July 4

CROSSVILLE — Residents from around the area are invited to attend the annual fireworks show here on Wednesday, July 4th.

The popular event, attended annually by as many as 15,000 people, is held each year at Centennial Park, located on 837 Industrial Boulevard in Crossville.

"We want to extend an open invitation for all area residents, not just from Crossville and Cumberland County, but from surrounding communities and counties, to join us for the annual fireworks show on Wednesday, July 4th," said Crossville Mayor J.H. Graham III. "The show is one of the highlights of the year, and we promise it will be a fabulous fireworks festival, with plenty of things to do."

The fun will start around 5 p.m., with concessions and an inflatable children's play area. All PEG-family radio stations and 105.7 FM will be on hand, either providing patriotic music or broadcasting.

There has never been a cancellation of the fireworks show for inclement weather, city officials said. "We've never had to cancel yet," said City of Crossville Parks and Recreation Director Steve Hill. "We've had some years where we've eked through between thunderstorms, but we've always made it."

For more information on the show, you can contact the Crossville Parks Department at (931) 456-6632, or by e-mail at
