This Year's Fire in the Sky Costs $30,000 to Fund

This year's Fire in the Sky event will feature a $30,000 fireworks show, according to Explore Harrison's Matt Bell.

The first show was $20,000. Bell appeared on KHOZ's "Around The Table" to talk about the celebration. He described this year's show as the "largest fireworks show that's ever taken place in the city of Harrison."

The show is on July 4 at 9:30 p.m. Bell emphasized the importance of arriving at 5 p.m. to get a chair ready and to participate in activities. New things will happen during the free fireworks display.

This massive event will have more designs in the fireworks. Explore Harrison paid $15,000 for the supplies. Bell said that's the office's way of paying the community back for supporting local restaurants.

The other half of the funding is paid by sponsors. Bell said the sponsors are great, and he added that there are times he'll get an unexpected call from people willing to fund the show. Anyone wanting to serve as a sponsor can contact Bell at 870-741-1789.

Different events will lead up to the show. More was discussed on the broadcast. More information is online.

The full interview with Bell is on the "Around The Table" Facebook Page.
