Another Fireworks Show Canceled in The Lansing Area
Now that the warm weather is here we are all getting out and enjoying the good old summertime. And of course one of the highlights of summer is the Fourth of July, one of my favorite holidays. I have been enjoying the fireworks at the last 2 Lugnuts games. Last year most of the firework shows across the country were canceled due to the pandemic. It was a tough summer as we all remember. Even though many things are being rescheduled this summer, some events are still not quite back to normal.
Here Is What You Should Know
July 4th falls on a Sunday this year and for the second year in row fireworks will not light up the sky on July 3rd in Delta Township according to fox47news.com.
It's a disappointment after, you know, 14 or 15 months of disappointments, but hopefully, this will be the last time we have to cancel it," said Delta Township manager, Brian Reed. The fireworks display has been going on for more than 50 years. Reed said they usually see 20 to 30,000 people at the event at Sharp Park.
One of the reasons for the cancellation is many law enforcement officers who work that show are not gonna be available this year for various reasons. Plus it's not cheap putting on this fireworks show, the price tag is $30 to 35,000, on top of that paying for staff along with paying for that private security, makes it a high price tag event.
Some 4th of July Events Are Still Happening
Here is some good news though, some firework shows are still scheduled in Mid Michigan, In Lansing, there will be a parade downtown on July 3rd at 11 a.m., and then fireworks will be fired off on July 4th just after 10 p.m. Eaton Rapids will still have their fireworks on July 4th, but the city of Mason will not. Have fun this year and please be safe.
