NEW SIGNATURE EVENT REPLACES MESQUITE FIREWORKS SHOW

(Mesquite, Texas) – The annual fireworks show in the city of Mesquite was replaced in April with a new signature event called the Real. Texas. Festival. The Festival is the result of a new partnership between the City and local Chamber of Commerce to create a unique attraction for residents and tourists during the spring rodeo season.

There are many regional venues offered to area residents interested in finding a fireworks extravaganza. Residents can check their local paper or go to the City’s Web site at www.cityofmesquite.com to find a listing of area shows.
