The Cherokee Village community is once again preparing to celebrate our nation’s independence with “Thunder on Thunderbird” to be held Thursday, July 4, 2018. July 4 in the Village will kick off with the CV Fire Fighter’s Pancake Breakfast at Baseheart Fire Station from 6:30 am to noon. Buy your tickets today at Centennial Bank in Highland. The evening celebration will begin at 7:00 pm with the Patriotic Boat Parade. Contact the marina at 870-257-3240 to enter your boat in the parade. The firework display will start on the dam at approximately 9:00 pm. We are grateful for the generous support of FNBC Bank as the headline sponsor for this year’s fireworks, and also for donations from individuals and businesses throughout the community.
