Fourth in the Falls Event Preview

The city of Wichita Falls has put together a full evening of fun for all ages. Robert Sullivan, Director of the Multi-Purpose Event Center said, there are a full list of things to do and most of the fun is free.

"We have in the exhibit hall, we have a magic show, bounce houses, an obstacle course, a bungie jump, a petting zoo, and I think we have a train ride as well." said Sullivan. He said, there may even be a snake exhibit.

Those activities are all inside, so if visitors looking for a way to beat the heat, they can just head on in. But, for those that are more outdoorsy, there's something for them too.

"In the exhibit hall certainly it's all indoors. The bands are going to be outside on the lawn behind the Colosseum, which offers the best view for the fireworks as well," said Sullivan.

Thousands of people are expected to come from all over Texoma. So, to get a spot on the lawn you should probably head out early. There will be no shortage of things to do, as those local performers hit the stage.

"Outside we have bands starting at 5:30 p.m., they will finish around 9:15 p.m., a fellow is coming on doing the national anthem then we'll go right into the fireworks, said Sullivan.

The city prefers that people come to the Fourth in the Falls event to enjoy the fireworks, as opposed to having their own fireworks display. Especially, since they are illegal within city limits.

"I think what we try to do is put on an event that the entire community, actually the entire region can come out and enjoy as a family, in a safe environment," said Sullivan.

The fireworks show will begin around 9:20 p.m. And last about 20-25 minutes. Over thirty-thousand people are expected to attend.
