Saturday night's fireworks were a culmination of a full day of activities in and around Brady, TX to celebrate America's founding 245 years ago.  But few know what it took to ensure that Brady had a fireworks show this year.  In fact, had it not been for the efforts of Dr. James W. Mercer from Heritage Funeral Home, there might not have been any fireworks at all.

Dr. Mercer was instrumental in securing enough donations from a variety of sources including many local businesses and individuals.  His goal is to have an even better show next year.

Brady Today was able to live stream the fireworks again this year, this time without interruptions, and to take screenshots of the display which are shown in this article.  We  thank all of those who followed our live broadcast on Saturday and hope everyone had a grand 4th of July!
