BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Folks in Bainbridge are looking forward to another incredible fireworks show at the Boat Basin Saturday night.

Families and friends were already out on the water Friday, enjoying the warm weather and sunshine before the holiday festivities begin.

Adam Jones said he's been coming to the show since he was a little boy. He said it's a fun tradition that he intends to pass down onto his daughter.

“It's usually a good time.  The music is good, the fireworks are great,” said Adams. “If you're watching from your boat, it's even better. You can get the 3D effect off of the water.  If not, you can come back here where there's a stage.  They usually have a couple local artists.”

There will be a Ferris wheel and inflatables for the kids in the afternoon.

Live music starts at 7 p.m. and the fireworks begin at 9:30 p.m.
