Everybody loves fireworks, as witnessed by the huge crowd that gathers to watch the fireworks go off at the annual July 4th celebration in Trenton.
Fireworks, however, are not inexpensive, particularly when you take into consideration the class of fireworks involved in the celebration. These aren’t the fireworks that your families and friends set off. These fireworks are of a commercial class, going higher into the air, making bigger booms and brighter displays to the “Oohhs and Aahhs” of the crowd watching the show.
In an effort to help provide a display the community will be proud of, donations are being accepted to cover the cost of pyrotechnics and fireworks. Even a single dollar will help.
If you would like to give a tax-free donation please mail or deliver your donation to the Chamber of Commerce office at 617 Main Street. or place your donation in one of the boxes found in Trenton License Bureau, Farmers Bank of Northern Missouri, Citizens Bank & Trust, Farmers State Bank, Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits, Chumbley’s Bar & Grill, 28th Street. TNT Convenience Store, BP Convenience Store, and Main Stop.
There will be lots of entertainment prior to the big show, with a concert held at CF Russel Stadium featuring music from bands such as Soca Jukebox, Island Rock From Kansas City, Greg & Susie York & Friends, Country Gospel From Parsons, Kansas will be playing during the concert as well.
The Concert begins at 5:00 p.m., with a concession stand open for those that get hungry and thirsty. All of the music during the concert is sponsored by Christian Motorcyclists Association.
Fireworks start going off at dusk, which is around 9:15 in the evening.
While you are enjoying all of the free music, as well as the display of fireworks, always remember, nothing in life is free. Someone behind the scenes has contributed funds to offset the cost to provide an evening for you and your family to enjoy. So, dig into those pockets, if you can, even change or a single dollar will make the display bigger and brighter for everyone.
