The Possum Kingdom Chamber of Commerce would like to publicly thank everyone that donated to the 2020 Hell's Gate Fireworks Show.  The incredible show happened because of you!  We reached the $30,000 goal to cover the cost of the fireworks show. The continued level of support indicates to the PK Chamber of Commerce that many believed in the importance of this 33-year tradition. Thanks also to our county first responders, Palo Pinto County, Brazos River Authority and all that attended the show. Celebrating life, freedom and America!
