Taylorville fireworks set for Sunday night

On Sunday, skies across the nation will explode with color.

At 9 p.m. at Taylorville Family Entertainment Center, city of Selma and Taylorville will partner up to bring residents their own July 4 fireworks show.

“We will be tailgating throughout the day,” said Vanessa Mott, an employee at Taylorville. “But the fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. and should last between 30 and 45 minutes.”

Patty Sexton, from Selma’s Planning and Development Department, said the city would have patriotic music playing from 7 to 9 p.m. under the pavilion at Taylorville.

“The Mayor and City Council members would also be passing out fans and flags,” said Sexton.

Mott said that Taylorville would also have a music festival beginning at 4 p.m.

“We hope that everyone will come out,” said Mott. “Bring your whole family and have some fun.”
