The Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Greenville will hold their annual Celebrate America fireworks show July at Tiger Stadium.

Unlike in years past, there will be no vendors or live entertainment at the event. However, Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Francine Wasden said this year’s fireworks show will be one of the largest the city has ever sponsored.

“It’s going to be one if our biggest ever,” she said. “You won’t want to miss it.”

Wasden said the vendors and live entertainment will be back next year as part of the Celebrate America event.

This year’s fireworks show will begin at 9 p.m. at Tiger Stadium. Due to stadium renovations, which include new turf, no one will be allowed to watch the show from the field.

The main gate at Tiger Stadium will open at 7 p.m.
