Mike Love & Associates prepare for July 4th fireworks show

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The fireworks show will start at 9:15 p.m. at Ellen Trout Zoo. Mike Love and Associates said it is the largest fireworks show in East Texas.

They plan on shooting 1,800 shells during the show. Mike Love said he's excited about the display and said they have been working for months with the Lufkin Police and Fire Department to put it all on.

"Fourth of July is something that we can all celebrate and just take a moment to enjoy and recognize the blessings that we have and all celebrate our nation's birth together," said Love.

If you want to avoid traffic, you can park at Lufkin High School and there will be 12 buses shuttling people to the zoo from 5 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
