The Sachse Chamber of Commerce is once-again partnering with the city and the Sachse Economic Development Corporation in the production of the 8th annual Red, White & Blue Blast.

The event will take place July 3 at Heritage Park.

It will be an evening of fun-filled events that will kick off with a parade and end with a spectacular fireworks display.

“Families will gather at Heritage Park to enjoy live music, games and activities for the children, and support area food, craft, and business vendors,” Parks and Recreation Director Lance Whitworth said. “The Sachse Red, White & Blue Blast has become a premiere event in the North Central Texas region and is known as one of the best fireworks displays in the area.”

The firing site will be Heritage Park, 4401 Hudson Dr., just off of Miles Road.

Parking for the event will be provided in the Sewell Elementary, Hudson Middle School and Sachse High parking lots.  

The city held its first fireworks display in 2008.

The fireworks will again be presented by Zambelli Fireworks International and will last approximately 25 minutes.

Whitworth said the city traditionally holds the fireworks on July 3 because it would not be in competition with long-established shows in other cities and it would give the citizens a kickoff to the holiday.

The second reason is that the cost of fireworks is approximately half if the display is done on July 3.

Mayor Mike Felix said the fireworks show will once again be an excellent opportunity for all of the citizens to get involved and meet other people in their community.

“This event fits into our goal of providing safe, entertaining and well-organized programs and activities that all the residents can enjoy,” he said.

Officials said the event is being planned as a family affair with good, old-fashioned fun and entertainment.
