Locals looking to stay in the county and see a professional fireworks show will have that chance tonight in Atoka.
Rock the Block 14 begins at 7 p.m. at Walker Park.
The fireworks begin after the sun sets, but there will be plenty to do before the fireworks show. There will be a free community picnic that will include hot dogs, chips, drinks, snow cones and watermelon.
Bounce houses for the kids will be set up. There will also be photo booths, splash pad activities, a dunk tank and sand volleyball.
Musical acts from Gateway Baptist and Genesis Church will perform.
A 55-foot ferris wheel will be set up in the park. Rides are $2 per person.
Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of a free shuttle service that will take people from Atoka Elementary School to the park and back.
Parking will not be allowed on Walker Parkway (east of Meade Lake Road), Farmers Trail or Kearns Circle.
People are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.
