STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI)- Family and friends in Starkville spent their holiday relaxing outside the Sportsplex.
Residents sat in lawn chairs enjoying the sunshine and music while kids played on jumpers before tonight’s fireworks show.
We asked some of the children why the 4th of July is so special to them.
“Mostly family time. To get together and enjoy and have a great time. Go outside and enjoy the fireworks,” said Baryland Ferguson.
Just celebrating days to have fun and have freedom. And celebrating it with your friends and family,” said Ashley and Alyssa Fuller.
The fireworks show started around 9 tonight and lasted about 18 minutes.
