Fireworks Friday After Little League Region Championship | Families
Fireworks didn't light up the sky in Warner Robins for the Independence Celebration at McConnell-Talbert Stadium.
Rain put a damper on those and the scheduled concert.
This Friday, the show is coming back with a bang.
Steve Provines and his squad from Martin County, Florida made it to the semi-finals of the Southeast Regional Tournament, with a game Wednesday afternoon.
Provines said, "If they win, they advance to the the finals on Friday night. If not, they're going to go home."
The team wants the championship trophy and a trip to the Little League Wold Series in Williamsport. A fireworks display Friday night would be a bonus.
Provines said, "Fireworks and a big win. That would be fantastic."
Allen Tattman is in charge of the post tournament show. He said, "Once the baseball game has ended, we will begin fireworks hopefullly by 9:30 p.m."
He says get there early, around 8:00 p.m. to park.
You can do that in the fields outside Perdue Primary and Perdue Elementary, off Cohen Walker Drive.
The lot near the soccer fields by the Houston County Health Department is also an option.
Handicap parking will be outside the Department of Family and Childrens Services.
Tatman said, "Don't bring glass containers. It's a family-friendly event, so we ask no alcohol. Don't bring your dog unless its a guide dog, of course."
Tatman says do bring your family, friends and high expectations for a 23-minute fireworks show, set to music.
It's all free.
Provines hopes his team will be there.
He said, "I want to call it a little bit more than hope. We expect to be there."
The fireworks are for everyone, but the winning team may see it as a special celebration just for them.
Warner Robins native Bobbie Eakes, who was supposed to perform at July's Independence Concert, will sing the national anthem at Friday's championship game.
That starts at 7 p.m.
