The city of Orrville added an extra attraction to its Fourth of July program on Sunday.

A car show was held hours before the city’s annual fireworks show at the Orrville Community Center.

Orrville was the only Dallas County city to hold a Fourth of July fireworks show last year. Selma and Valley Grande did not have Independence Day programs because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’m thankful that the residents came out together to support the car show and fireworks,” Lumpkin said.
