I was told Hinton will be setting off fireworks tonight. Does anyone know if this is correct? If so, what time?

yes, they will be after the boat parade on the lake. It begins at 9:00 so shortly thereafter. They will be set off from the top of the Dam.

to be fair, until the powers that be bring back the boat races during festival time and allow the old Budweiser sponsorship back the way it used to be, it will continue to be a joke of a festival.

you have no damn clue who does what and what i do or dont do i know of several people that tried to help with the water festival but will not be allowed by mary haley. she acts like she ownes the damn thing and its always a flop. just drive by the memorial building and look around its a junkyard of old rusty dirty trailers and all the town druggies hanging out there. is this something to be proud of? how many of the local business do you see doing things? until the county and city takes a stand and takes control of the festival it will continue to be nothing

Would probably have helped if they'd let people even know it was happening.I seen an ad for Meadow bridge Homecoming that listed all the events and when.Saw a little ad of something about a boat parade and that was it in the paper.WTF? Maybe if ya print it people would come?Couldn't hurt,could it? By the way I'm going to MB to see the fireworks there since at least they have enough since to advertise when and where an event is.Besides it's usually alot bigger and more fun with the live bands and all!

For all who missed the fireworks, they were great. Very well put on. We watched from a boat on the lake. It was beautiful.

Well everyone dont have a boat or a way to get to the lake i bet they would have been beautiful if they had been downtown, but more people could have enjoyed them. the water festival is a joke. i think everyone should start calling the county commission and making your complaints about how this thing is run and money is wasted i know i will be
