East Texas Yamboree fireworks show lights up night sky in Gilmer
GILMER, Texas (KLTV) - If you just can’t wait until Tuesday, a big Fourth of July fireworks show is taking place in Gilmer Monday night.
The event took place at the Yamboree Event Center.
Early on Monday, staff was getting everything set up for a radio show on 99.1 FM that would play music to match the fireworks. Randy Hill with the East Texas Yamboree Association said the show would start at about 9:15 p.m., barring any bad weather, and the show will go on eventually regardless.
“We’ll have our usual opening ceremonies, which is going to be patriotic,” Hill said, “and this year’s theme is going to be based on -- this is the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War.”
Hill said the show would last about 20 minutes, and it will be preceded by an air show at about 8:30 p.m., also depending on the weather. It will feature a couple T-6s flying in formation, along with an acrobatic plane.
