The same flare as usual, with an added pinch of Dixieland, is what can be expected from this year's Pops in the Park entertainment.

Before the Big Spring Symphony takes the stage Tuesday at the annual event and the fireworks go off, Don Turner will take the stage with his Dixieland jazz band from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Turner, a former Big Spring resident, will perform as the pre-show entertainment. The audience can expect to hear New Orleans stye Dixieland music, Turner said.
