The Washington-Wilkes Chamber of Commerce presents its annual Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks Show, which is coming up later this evening.
Available at the show will be a variety of vendors that will be serving food and other items for patrons of the event.
The annual fireworks show is supported by a grassroots effort of the community, and is funded almost entirely through donations.
Also, in conjunction with the celebration event, tickets will be sold for a 50/50 raffle.
Tickets will be sold during the show at a cost of five dollars for two tickets or ten dollars for five tickets; the drawing for the winner is expected to take place just before the fireworks go off.
As of yesterday afternoon, the winning pot was up to an even thousand dollars.
For more information about the 50/50 raffle or the fireworks show itself, contact the Washington-Wilkes Chamber of Commerce at (706) 678-2013.
