Fireworks Extravaganza Giveaway

For the  rest of August we are hosting an end of the Summer Giveaway!  We are giving away 2 Free Tickets (and a parking pass)  to our Fireworks Extravaganza, September 4, 2010!


If  you haven't been to our fireworks before then  you've never seen fireworks like this. Only one of two of  it's kind in the entire country the show features brilliant ground displays as well as aerial fireworks, all set to dramatic music and inspiring narration.


This year’s annual theme “Let’s Play Ball! American Sports History,” which will showcase the history of nine of America’s sports.

Set pieces are large pictures displayed by fireworks. The aerial fireworks and set pieces are all controlled and fired electronically by Young Explosives using state-of-the-art computer technology. This gives the spectator the utmost quality fireworks show as opposed to shows that are manually fired. This is a visual experience not to be missed!

Prior to the start of the show, there will be music, face painting, 19th-century games and crafts, plus festival food and drink stations with hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages, fried dough, cotton candy, popcorn and Abbott’s ice cream available for purchase. 

This year, for the first time ever in this area, Beatle Magic, a fantastic Beatles tribute band will play at 5:30 p.m. before the fireworks. Boasting the high visibility of strong vocals, music and a commitment to the accurate reproduction of the Beatles, this is the band to see if you want to know what it might have been like had the Beatles toured today!
You can enter between August 17-31 2010 at 9am EDT. The winner will be announced August 31st.
