The First Baptist Church in Tyler South Campus will celebrate the upcoming Fourth of July holiday with a family-friendly event tonight.

Its Family Fireworks Show will begin at 6 p.m. and vendors, live music and a fireworks show, said an announcement from the congregation.

Music will be provided by The Magills and The Avid Light, the announcement said.

The South Campus is located at 17002 Highway 69 South, just south of Toll 49.

Organizers are asking those who attend to donate three canned food items per family that will be used to stock the pantry of the Tyler Family Assistance Center.

Tonight's event is the first of a series of fireworks shows, patriotic concerts and special events until the City of Tyler’s fireworks show in Lindsey Park on July 5 that will celebrate our nation’s independence.
