The city of Bullard will hold its annual Blast Over Bullard Fireworks Show Thursday at Bullard High School.

The annual fireworks show is a free family-friendly event, according to a news release.

This year, the celebration will include a children’s patriotic-themed parade.

“Everyone is invited to bring their wagons, bikes, scooters or golf carts,” Mayor Pam Frederick said in the news release. “You can be a parade participant as long as you are decked out in red, white and blue. We want the kids to actively participate and show their patriotic pride.”

Prizes will be awarded to the best parade participants.

“Parents need not worry about their children’s safety during the parade.” Mayor Frederick said. “Parade participants will line up on School House Road around 5:30 p.m. We will lead the kids up Panther Crossing to the high school. The parade route will be closed to through traffic for everyone’s safety.”

Headlining this year’s event will be Stevie Jo Rosenbalm, contestant from the hit NBC television program, “The Voice.” Also set to perform is the family gospel trio The Purple Hulls. Music will kick off at 7 p.m.

Food vendors will be on site for the event. Children’s activities are planned to open around 7 p.m. including face painting and bounce houses.

Fireworks will begin at dark.
