A scene from the very first PurpleHull Pea Festival 'Pea-tacular' Fireworks Show in 2005.  The 2013 fireworks show will be Saturday, June 29, at 9:00 p.m., or shortly thereafter.


The 2013 PurpleHull Pea Festival 'Pea-tacular' Fireworks Show

In 2005, we decided to celebrate Emerson's centennial with the town's first-ever professional fireworks show.

Boy was it good. What we saw was Columbia County's best fireworks show ever.

It went so well that we asked ourselves, "Why don't we do this again?"

So we did.  So we kept doing it.  And we're doing it again in 2013.

 Be in Emerson the evening of Saturday, June 29, for this year's 'Pea-tacular' Fireworks Show.

The show will begin about 9:00 p.m., or shortly thereafter.

But come at least a little sooner - the Pea Stompin' Street Dance will begin at 8:00 p.m.  This year the headline act is the Band of Stepbrothers.

The band will take an intermission break for the fireworks show, then resume after it's over.

So it's a two-for-one event.  A great fireworks show, and a great band.  And no charge to attend.

  So stick around after the show to enjoy what the festival has to offer.  And be sure and visit our special Food and Arts & Crafts vendors.

It's a great show!.
