The Polk County area will again hold several activities for the Fourth of July. The celebrations will begin the day before on Monday, and continue into Tuesday night.

The Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas will host its annual fireworks display Monday, July 3. The entertainment starts at 7 p.m. with the tribal dancers and continues at 8 p.m. with the Brown Sugar Band. Fireworks begin at 10 p.m. and admission to all is free of charge.

F.A.I.T.H. Military will hold a free family event starting at 10 a.m. on Independence Day. Games, food, music, entertainment, vendors and prizes will continue until around 1 p.m. at Livingston’s Anniversary Park next to Melbo’s. There is also a bike parade that starts at 11 a.m.

Onalaska’s fireworks extravaganza brings in visitors from miles away, and this year should be no different. The festivities begin at 5 p.m. and fireworks start at dusk. Handicapped parking is only available at Chaserz Lakeside. All other parking and shuttle services are available at Onalaska Elementary at 304 South FM 356 and Onalaska First Assembly at 246 Old Trinity Road. There is a fundraiser for the fireworks and donations can be made by calling Macey George at 936-646-5000. 

Onalaska’s 12th annual fishing derby has registration for ages 3-15 from 5-6 p.m. and the young anglers pull in their catches 6-7:30 p.m. Trophies and prizes will be awarded after the event. All should bring poles, bait, tackle and lawn chairs.
