"Right behind me there's the stage trailer for the announcer for the parade," explained Recreation Services Manager, Brent Kubalek. "So as the parade passes by the announcer will be announcing each of the entrances and will share a little bit about them."

The City of Pasco will have its annual fireworks show at Gesa Stadium. It's free to attend and there will be live music.

"The gates will open at 4:30," said Kubalek. "There will be entertainment; music and a band playing and the fireworks show itself will start at 10:00 p.m."
