Funtastic Fourth organizers are promising a little bit of everything when the annual event returns later this month and they apparently are making good on their vow.

The Downtown Revitalization Association Presents the 10th Annual Alon USA/Alon Brands Funtastic Fourth will be held from 10 a.m. until midnight Saturday, June 30 in Big Spring's downtown area, and events include live music, give-aways, food, and, as a new twist, pig races.
