Jerry Adair will produce his 7th Annual 4th of July Fireworks program Sunday night and has dedicated it to the memory of his late son, Keith Adair, and to all parents who have lost children. "This is how I give back to Haleyville," Adair said. The program begins Sunday night just before 10 PM with the singing of the National Anthem by his daughter, Tina Adair Dishman.
There will be music beginning at 7 PM. "I just want everybody to come out with the family for some good, safe fun," Adair said. He especially wanted to thank Tom Williams and all the employees at the Piggly Wiggly, and all those at Burger King. He added, "I couldn't do this without them, I couldn't do this without the people of Haleyville." He said that he pays for the show out of the revenue he receives from his two fireworks stands, one in each of Piggly Wiggly's parking lots.
The show is in the parking lot of Village East and Police Chief Kyle Reogas wants everyone to have a good, safe time. "This is a great gift to [the City]," Reogas said. Haleyville Police will be out in force, including plain clothes officers in the crowd, and Reogas asked for patience in clearing the parking lot after the event. He added, "This a good show right here in Haleyville."
