Omega - One of Tift County's largest family-owned businesses is giving the community a special 4th of July gift.
Patrick Farms in Omega will hold it's fifth annual fireworks show Saturday. Gibbs Patrick, Jr. has hired a professional fireworks team to put on a free show for the community at his farm.
The family will even have free watermelon and cantelope for spectators.
"It means a lot to my family to be able to give back to the community. A lot of the older people are not able to go to town to see the fireworks, and a lot of them can sit right there in their own homes and see it because the town's so close," said Patrick.
This year, the fireworks show will be dedicated to Patrick's son, Russell Clark Patrick who died last year.
The show will begin around 9:00 Saturday night and last for about 30 minutes.
Patrick Farms is on highway 319 about one mile south of Omega.
