The Mena Advertising and Promotion Commission will be celebrating America with a fantastic fireworks display at Tapley Park on Saturday, July 1st as part of their 7th Annual 4th of July Fireworks Celebration event. In addition to the fireworks, there will be live entertainment, great food, and activities for children.
The fun begins at 5 p.m. with bouncy houses, cotton candy, and concessions. At 7:30 p.m. the local Contemporary Gospel band, Harmony, will perform. Harmony is a Christian band comprised of three members: Retta Smith on keyboards and vocals, Rodney Provence on bass, rhythm, and vocals, and Lynn Smith on drums and vocals.
Harmony has been performing concerts for several years in churches, benefits, and other community events. Their first CD, “Weathering the Storm,” was released in March of last year.
Fireworks will begin at dark (between 9:15 – 9:30 pm). Everyone is invited to come enjoy a family friendly night of entertainment and fireworks to celebrate America and Independence Day! Be sure to bring your lawn chairs.
