The stars will share the sky with phosphorescent explosions of light as residents of Crossett celebrate a star-spangled holiday with a citywide fireworks show July 4.

Century Next Bank of Crossett will continue the annual Fourth of July fireworks show its banking predecessor, First National Bank of Crossett, did in previous years.

The Crossett city council has approved a firework variance for Century Next Bank for this year and years to come to continue the firework show tradition. The show will begin at dusk in downtown Crossett.

As in previous years, the fireworks will be shot from Lucas Pond and seating will be available at the Yarbrough Field football stadium. Something that will be offered at the show that hasn’t been before will be barbecue and brisket.

Those who wish may purchase barbecue plates from the Crossett High School’s Future Farmers of America program. FFA sponsor Sammy Cox said they will be selling pork and brisket plates for $8 in the circle drive behind the high school. The group will set up at 5 p.m. and sell until the food is gone.
