Fireworks are as American as apple pie and have been since the first US fireworks display on July 4, 1777. That’s 243 years! The Milbank Chamber won’t be disappointing you or our forefathers this year. They keep the time-honored tradition alive this Saturday, July 4, at Farley Park.
Laurie Folk, director of the Milbank Chamber says, “The fireworks display will be the same quality as other years. And, like every year, the Milbank Fire Department will be on hand to make sure the event doesn’t go up in smoke. Safety first!”
The celebration starts at dusk. Parking is on the south side of Farley. (A few handicap spaces are available just inside the gate.) Entry is only through the front gate. Social distancing will not be regulated, but the fireworks will be visible from your car.
Folk says, “Like so many years in the past, Carol Oltman is graciously allowing us to use her land to shoot off the fireworks. Also, Terry and Carolyn Patnoe and their daughter,Tiffany, have been instrumental in making sure this event goes off without a hitch and everyone’s Fourth of July is spectacular.”
Want to help light up the night ? Donations are still needed to cover the cost of the display. All donations are greatly appreciated.
Drop off your donation in the city utility dropbox — mark the envelope Chamber Fireworks. Stop in to see Laurie at the Chamber. Mail your check to 1001 E. 4th Avenue- Suite 101.
Or bring some good ol’ American cash to the show. Chamber members will be at the fireworks with donation buckets in hand. Help make America bright this year!
