A Tyler Independence Day fireworks show will be held on Saturday, July 5, at Lindsey Park, it was announced this morning at the Tyler City Council meeting.

For many years, the Tyler Jaycees have coordinated the local fireworks display, but that organization has disbanded, leaving the Independence Day fireworks without their traditional sponsor and coordinator.

But the City of Tyler has taken on the responsibility of staging the event, and the funding is coming mostly through private donations, it was announced this morning.

We will post more details as they become available.
