Pisgah to have first ever 4th of July town celebration

PISGAH, AL (WAFF) - A Scottsboro church, which has committed three months to helping rebuild the town of Pisgah, is now planning for a day off.

Members of the Rock Family Worship Center are hoping to spend this 4th of July bringing the town together for a day of fun.

Crews are working to get the Gorge Civitan Park, which received heavy tornado damage, ready for Pisgah's first-ever 4th of July Celebration.

They said the City of Scottsboro helped a lot in removing trees, but they're still working on getting electricity and lights to the stage.

The Rock Family Worship Center's a 4th of July celebration will include food, inflatable water games, and live music.

It's all for the town of Pisgah.

"Give them a day off from building their home. They can come over here and get some free food. Have some free entertainment and they can just sit back and relax and forget about their worries for at least a day," said Pisgah's Mayor Chris Woods.

The event starts at 2 p.m. on July 4th.

It will conclude with a fireworks show sometime after dark.
