The City of Thomasville invites the community to the annual CNS Independence Day Fireworks and Festivities celebration. The Fireworks and Festivities celebration will be held Saturday, July 4, with activities beginning at 6:30 p.m., followed by the fireworks display at 9:30 p.m. on West Jackson Street in Downtown Thomasville.

For 17 years, CNS has brought the annual Fireworks and Festivities celebration to the community as a way to express thanks for the community’s support and loyalty. During Thomasville’s early July 4th events, the celebration consisted of only a fireworks show, which was funded and managed by the City of Thomasville’s Recreation Department. When the Recreation Department’s responsibilities were transitioned to the YMCA in 1999, CNS saw this as a great opportunity to enhance the event and use it as a way to give back to the community who had so fully supported their young company.

“We believe that community celebrations, such as the Fireworks and Festivities, are one of the best ways we can express our gratitude to those that choose CNS for their Internet, telephone and digital television service,” said Marketing Director Sheryl Sealy. “That’s why we are proud to invest in our community’s events each year, including the Annual Rose Show and Festival and Fireworks and Festivities. We also partner with many other local organizations, including the Center for the Arts, to help their events and productions be successful throughout the year,” Sealy added.

CNS’s annual tradition has something for everyone, including live music by 80s cover band, Members Only. Kids can enjoy free admissions to Leap Frogz and a variety of free activities, including face painting and cupcake decorating. The highlight of the event will be the fireworks display, which will begin around 9:30 p.m.

“Our goal is to provide a fun, family event that everyone, from all age groups, can come out to and enjoy,” said Sealy. “CNS is very proud to bring this event to our community each year so that we can celebrate our nation’s birthday with our family, friends and community.”
