SHERMAN, TX -- The city of Sherman kicked off Independence Day celebrations a day early.
Officials say around 8,000 people showed up to the fourth annual Lights on the Lake at Pecan Grove park. Crews set off about $10,000 worth of fireworks, paid for by donations from Landmark Bank, one of the show's sponsors. News 12 is also a proud sponsor of tonight's event.
More than a year's worth of planning goes into the event, and recreation manager, Theresa Hutchinson, says it's become a tradition to host it on July 3rd.
