Muleshoe Chief of Police Gary McHone said the Muleshoe Fourth of July Celebration held Saturday, July 3, was successful overall.

“There were a lot of folks at the parade and the celebration,” he said. “Amateur fireworks within the city of Muleshoe are forbidden, but we had several calls reporting fireworks being set off within the city of Muleshoe. That’s expected, with the 4th of July coming right on the heels of COVID. The good news is that everybody we made contact with complied.”

McHone heard of one injury of a child, but the police department was not involved with the call.

“I hated for that one person to be injured, but compared to what it could have been, we were pretty successful.”

McHone said the professional fireworks display was very good.

“Some people with their own fireworks were trying to compete. Which happens. Unfortunately, there was a lot of residual firework trash in the park area. It’s a shame to see that folks did not clean up after themselves.

“At this time, some people are still shooting off fireworks. We’ve tried to take a proactive stance on it.”
