The Texas Gypsies, an award winning band with a “unique and eclectic style & sound all their own,” will perform live at the Pecan Grove Amphitheater beginning at 7:45 p.m. The fireworks show is scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m.

Parking near Pecan Grove Park West is extremely limited, so Texoma Area Paratransit System (TAPs) has once again partnered with the City of Sherman to provide free bus rides from off-site parking lots directly to the front gates of the park. This year’s off-site parking lots will be located at Fusion Bible (previously known as Sherman Bible Church) and Faith Church. Expect a moderate walk through the park to get to the amphitheater and activities.
