In this file photo, people crowd around the areas near Mowrey Elevator to get a good view of the fireworks show being put on by Main Street Marianna and the City of Marianna.

The City of Marianna and Main Street Marianna will host the 9th Annual Fireworks Celebration on Wednesday, July 3, at Madison Street Park.

The event begins at 5 p.m. with live entertainment by Dickie Merritt & The Original Bama Jam starting at 5:30 p.m. Bama Jam is one of the tri-state area’s most versatile and entertaining music quartets, with leader Dickie Merritt of Enterprise, Richard Hinson as guitarist, Jeff Peacock as saxophonist and Royce Reagan on the keyboard.

Make plans to come downtown early and let the children play in the splash pad. There will be food and arts-and-crafts vendors set up at Madison Street Park. Don’t forget your lawn chair and cooler.

Fireworks will be launched downtown, from behind Mowrey Elevator, at dark (8:30 p.m.). There are many great viewing sites, but the prime viewing location is Madison Street Park, at 2884 Madison Street.

Applications for vendors are being accepted through Thursday, June 20. No late registrations will be accepted. To register, visit and click on the Main Street page or call Meghan Holley at 850-718-1022.
