A couple of venues for fireworks tonight are open for those who want to celebrate July 4.

In Selma, Taylorville, the family entertainment center, will host a fireworks show at 9 p.m. Dr. Bruce Taylor decided to host the fireworks display after finding out the city could not afford one. The City of Selma traditionally holds a fireworks show on July 4.

“We want everybody to come and out be a part of the celebration,” said Selma Mayor George Evans.
