West Point’s Fourth of July celebration is a fun family event that is capped with one of the top fireworks shows in the area.
The day traditionally includes games for kids, horseshoe pitching contests, bingo, baseball games, a ranch rodeo or cattle penning event, and sometimes a musical act or two.
It’s also the day the West Point Chamber of Commerce serves its annual BBQ, offering beef and pork sandwiches for a reasonable price.
Shortly before dusk, the park fills with people anxious to watch the night sky light up. West Point’s Volunteer Fire Department, with the assistance of other volunteers, handles the annual fireworks show.
