Aristotle Unified Communications is proud to sponsor Arkansas City’s Independence Day Celebration on Monday, July 4, 2022. The public is invited for an evening of fireworks, music, and fun for the entire family! From a vantage point atop the levee, spectators can catch a spectacular view of the FREE firework show!
“The Last July 4th celebration brought visitors from all over South East Arkansas,” says Arkansas City Mayor, Rick Hales, “and this year’s firework display promises to be the biggest yet!”
Families should bring lawn chairs, and fireworks will begin shortly after dusk, around 9:00 PM.
Parking on the levee is allowed, but Mayor Hales requests that visitors park on the shoulders of the road to leave the middle accessible for emergency traffic.
