city-of-thomasville-logoTHOMASVILLE, GA – Thomasville residents who live close to the downtown area may notice some loud noises this evening but should not be alarmed. The City of Thomasville will not be under attack, but rather will be testing potential launch sites for future fireworks displays. These test launches are being conducted as part of the City of Thomasville Main Street and Tourism’s initiative to provide a dynamic experience within Thomasville’s historic downtown area.

“We will be launching a very small amount of fireworks Tuesday night between 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.,” said Executive Director of Main Street & Tourism Karen Smith.

According to Smith, these test launches are necessary to test for visibility.

“We are always looking to identify new and unique experiences that we can bring to the community,” she said. “As part of this experiment, we’ll be launching around eight or nine aerial fireworks to evaluate how visible they are from various locations in the area.”

Testing will take place behind North Lee Street and West Jefferson Street. To ensure safety, the roadways and surrounding area near the test site will be temporarily closed to public access.
