Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge (TCWR) will hold it's 16th annual Independence Day celebration Thursday, July 4, from 7:30 p.m. to midnight with an awesome fireworks display, a variety of concessions, and live entertainment featuring Gorilla Blues. The refuge requests a per-car donation which can be applied to a 2013 Family Membership pass.

"It's hard to believe this will be our 16th year of what we call 'organized chaos" here at the refuge. This is our most popular event every year since fireworks are not allowed within the Eureka Springs city limits," said Tanya Smith, TCWR president and co-founder. "Our fireworks display just gets bigger each year," added Smith

Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets and may legally shoot off their own fireworks in a designated area or buy them on-site. The refuge will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for wildlife viewing with hourly Habitat Tours from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and feeding time at 5 p.m. Refuge admission prices are $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for seniors, veterans, and children between the ages of 4-12. Children under 4 are free.

All donations appreciated and used to finance ongoing care and feeding for over 130 tigers, lions, cougars, leopards and other wildlife making TCWR a life-long home.
