A dozen star-spangled banners salute the July 4th Holiday.
Director of Forsyth Better Hometown Loraine Khoury says. "last year we had one badn and 3-D glasses for 3-D fireworks. This year we have two bands."
Not to mention the 350 fireworks that will light the sky. This is the 4th year Forsyth Better Hometown has set up the holiday party.
"Particularly now that our soldiers have given us so much in Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq, we need to be celebrating as a tribute to them."
The event will take place at the Monroe County Recreation Park. There will be plenty of games, food, and space to enjoy the entertainment.
"We've got the double slides, blow up slides for the children and bouncey houses," says Khoury.
The 572nd Air Force Band from Tennessee and Big Daddy & Co. will fill the air with music. The event is free to the public. That's because the city picked up the tab.
"Fireworks usually cost five thousand dollars, we're lucky this year, the band, all we have to do is feed them so that's not a big expense," she says.
Last year, the city paid $12,000 to put on the show.
