The city of Celina announced plans today for the annual Splash and Blast celebration at Old Celina Park.
Splash and Blast is the city's yearly Fourth of July celebration. The event will take place on from 5-10 p.m. June 26 and is free to the public.
The event will include musical entertainment throughout the event by DJSC, the official DJ of the Dallas Cowboys. Country music entertainer Coffey Anderson will perform live on the Main Stage at 7:30 p.m. The evening will conclude with a 22-minute fireworks show and patriotic music celebration.
"Splash and Blast is our time as a community to celebrate the summer and this great nation in which we live," Celina Mayor Sean Terry said. "I hope everyone in Celina will plan to be at this year's event and invite friends from other cities to come to see what makes Celina such a great place to live."
The event will also include a kid's area with bounce houses, water slides, foam pit, craft area and a nine-hole putting course. Vendors will be on-site selling food, beverages and market items.
"The city of Celina loves to gather together, and Splash and Blast gives our community a chance to unite and celebrate our country just before Independence Day," City Manager Jason Laumer said. "This is one of the most exciting and fun events we host, and we hope families from around North Texas will plan to join us."
