The City of Forney will hold its annual Independence Day Celebration at Community Park, 241 S.

Inflatables will be available for children from 6 to 9 p.m. along with face painting at the Connect Church tent. Come hungry, because there will be more than a dozen vendors providing several types of cuisine, including BBQ, street tacos, pizza, popcorn, snow cones, ice cream and other carnival-style food.

We are also happy to announce that All Funk Radio Show will be playing live from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Radio Show’s of more than 150 songs include Old School R&B, Motown, Pop & Hip-Hop that will certainly entertain people of all ages.

Once the concert has completed, the fireworks show will begin from the north side of the Community Park at approximately 9:30 p.m. Parking will be available at the Community Park, however, if we reach capacity, parking will also be available at both the Forney Baptist Church and Forney High School.
