It has been my experience that the people of Kaufman County can be described as patriotic and fun-loving, so it stands to reason that our Independence Day celebrations tend to be great. If you haven’t made plans already, here are a few places you may want to enjoy some fireworks, spend time with friends and family, and hopefully make some time to reflect on the history and people that made our country what it is.
If I’ve left an event off the list, please add it in the comments.
Forney- Lots to do at the Forney central park. Concerts at the Spellman Amphitheater start at 6 p.m. with artists Railhead and Roger Creager. Fireworks at 9:15. Looks like on-site tickets for the concert is $17.50, but all of the activities in the park are free. I heard good things about this event last year. Facebook event page.
Seagoville- OK, just outside of Kaufman County, but close enough. Free music by BackTrak at Bruce Central Park (you know, the prison park.) Some sort of giant water slide setup is apparently in the works, $10 for unlimited sliding. I live close to this one and have been regularly…. not the biggest fireworks display you’ve ever seen, but for a smaller community event it is a lot of fun and plenty of space to spread out a blanket. I suppose you could bring a fishing pole and see what you can pull out of the pond. City event page.
