Fireworks to kickoff for 75th Annual Persimmon Festival

MITCHELL – To kick off the start of the 75th Annual Persimmon Festival, the City of Mitchell will be setting off fireworks at the Lehigh Ball Fields Friday, September 16th, starting at approximately 10 p.m.

“We wanted to still provide the fireworks display for the city, but we are making sure to not disrupt the football game, and the community event at the football field, so we pushed the start time back to allow the football players, family members, and fans make their way out to the field for the fireworks,” said Mitchell Mayor J.D. England.
