Fireworks, blues slated for July 3 downtown
A big fireworks show is set for July 3 during the kickoff of the Bikers ’N Blues Night in downtown Holly Springs.
Contract Fabricators and the city are sponsoring the fireworks show. The Holly Springs Main Street Chamber’s promotions committee organized the Bikers ’N Blues, which this year enters its fourth season, according to Charles Terry with the committee.
Bikers night will continue each Thursday night through the summer and ends the last Thursday night in September.
Terry said the sound stage will be set up July 3 at the north end of Market Street for this night only, then move back to North Center Street for the remainder of the season.
Two bands have been asked to perform for the first blues show of the year. The street opens at 6 p.m. with D.J. music. Bands are set to play at 7 p.m. The 30-minute fireworks show begins about 9 p.m.
Park Street, in the area of Spring Hollow Park, will be closed to traffic and pedestrians during the fireworks show. The fireworks will be visible from Market Street, high over the old jail, water house and fire station.
“Bring your lawn chairs and make yourself comfortable,” Terry said.
