FIREWORKS AT PATRIOT’S PARK EXPENSIVE UNDERTAKING FOR KPD

The 4th of July fireworks display at Patriot’s Park is a tradition in Bond County, but it’s an expensive tradition.  This year’s fireworks display cost $13,072.96 according to KPD director Jerry Sauerwine.  The total money in donations, tourism money, and glow sticks sold by the KPD, was $4,639.92.  That leaves a deficit for the 2011 show of more than $8,000.00 and the extra expense comes from the Kingsbury Park District.  Sauerwine estimated at least 2,000 people attended the free event.  The KPD will be looking at more ways to raise money for the fireworks display.
