The annual fireworks display, provided by Melrose Pyrotechnics, is scheduled to go off just after dark at about 9:30 p.m.

“We’re going to have local mu­sic, a dance contest, and a special flag-raising ceremony,” said John Singleton III, director of the W-W Chamber of Commerce. “We’ll also have the Spider Jump for the kids, that has been so popular in years past, and plenty of vendors around The Square.”
