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

The city of Selma and Taylorville Entertainment Center will add their contribution to the mix as they partner up at 9 p.m. at Taylorville to bring city residents a 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 of Selma’s Planning and Development Department said patriotic music will play from 7 until 9 p.m. under the pavilion at the entertainment center.

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

Mott said  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.”
