City of Eunice

The City of Eunice will once again host its annual July 4th Fireworks Display.
Sunday, July 4th at 9:00 PM at the Eunice Recreation Complex at 461 Sittig Road, Eunice, LA (weather permitting - rain can cancel the event).
Former Eunice Mayor Kenneth Peart is once again the Pyrotechnist in charge of the Fireworks Display and, as has been the case for the last 30 years, this year will be even bigger than last year's!
The 30-minute event can be seen from miles around but the best view is from the Recreation Complex itself. The event is free and people are encouraged to come out with blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the "first row" view of the Fireworks which always end with the "Grand Finale" which gets bigger and bigger every year!

The Mendoza Independence Day Celebration will take place June 26, 2021 frrom 5-10pm at Mendoza Ford. All event proceeds will go to the Maurice Police and Fire Department. The event is free to the public. Bracelets are $5 to taste all cookoff entries.
