The Corinth Police Department would like to extend warm wishes during this coming 4th of July Holiday. While this is a great time of the year, it is important to remember to stay safe while enjoying the holiday. The Corinth Police Department would also like to remind residents of Corinth and Shady Shores that all fireworks are illegal to possess and discharge in each respective city. We will maintain high visibility throughout the holiday weekend and will enforce these ordinances.

We encourage our residents to attend the Lake Cities Firework celebration at the Lake Dallas City Park on Monday, July 4th from 9a-10p. The festivities begin with a patriotic parade followed by food, contests, vendors, inflatable water slides, horseback rides and toe tappin’ music. The day is brought to a close with one of the largest, most dazzling fireworks displays in the area.

Also, please remember your pets. Due to fireworks usage, more dogs get lost around July 4th than any other time of the year. Keep your pets properly confined to avoid escape due to fear of fireworks. Have your dog’s registration and identification up to date in the event your pet does escape.

We hope you all have a fun and safe 4th of July Holiday!
