Valley Grande hosts Fireworks show

The city of Valley Grande hosted a fireworks show a day before the Fourth of July.

On a muggy, moonlit evening, residents from Valley Grande, Selma and parts of Dallas County parked between the Valley Grande Sports Complex and Valley Grande Bapstist Church to attend a fireworks show produced by J&M Displays, a company based out of Iowa.

The overflow crowed stretched over a couple of blocks.

Valley Grande Councilwoman Sara Day, who coordinated the fireworks show, said she was pleased with the event.

“We had a great turnout tonight and everyone seemed to enjoy the fireworks,” Day said.

Day said it was important to have the fireworks, especially that last year’s event didn’t take place because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“After being canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, we were glad to be able to bring the fireworks show back this year for the citizens of Valley Grande to enjoy,” Day said.

The Dallas County Sheriff Office, Dallas County Animal Control, Valley Grande Volunteer Fire Department, Potter’s Station and Rescue team were also present at the event.

Charles Morgan produced the fireworks and was assisted by Missie Colburn, Brittany Braswell and Khloe Braswell.

Morgan said he was pleased with the event.
