No coolers are allowed, but adult beverages, food and drinks will be sold at the event and no outside food or drink will be allowed in the gates. Bring your lawn chairs, as seating is not provided. There is no reserved seating area, the earlier you get there, the closer you are to the stage. Tents are allowed but must be behind the marked area.

“We have the best fireworks shows in East Texas,” said Mickie Raney, GBC treasurer.

General Admission tickets can be purchased at Gun Barrel City Hall.

Unfortunately, there will not be a carnival this year, however, a July Bounce House Fest will begin at 5 p.m. in the tennis court area at the park. Wristbands will be $5 per child for unlimited jumping and water slide fun. This is a fenced in area so space will be limited.
