Fireworks shows set Sunday and Monday nights

July 1, 2011 —     Morehead Tourism Commission again is sponsoring two separate nights of fireworks in Rowan County with the help of community donations.

    On Sunday, July 3, fireworks will be shot from Cave Run Dam over the lake.

    “Spectators can view the fireworks from the Stoney Cove area or around the spillway or below the dam if they are not on the lake,” said Terri Alderman, executive director of the Morehead Tourism Commission.

    On Monday, July 4, fireworks will be detonated near Walmart.

    “Extreme Pyrotechnics will be putting on the fireworks displays both Sunday and Monday,” Alderman said. “Neither show would be possible without the help of our community.“

    “There were several years we just didn’t have the funds to do a fireworks show at the lake,” said Alderman. “We are fortunate enough to have local businesses and community members assist with funding and help bring back the fireworks shows.”

    Alderman expressed gratitude to the Rowan County Veterans Foundation for handling donations to the fireworks fund.

    Assisting with donations this year were First Federal Savings and Loan Association, US Bank, Dr. Ballard C. Smith, Larry Fannin Chevrolet, Cave Run Marinas, American Business Systems, Northcutt and Son Home for Funerals, The Citizens Bank, Dairy Queen, Cave Run Storage, and several slipholders at the Scott’s Creek marina.

    For information, contact the Morehead Tourism Commission at 780-4342.
