Don’t forget Thursday’s big fireworks display

The year is now half over and for most people, a couple of days off this week will be a warm welcome. With the fourth of July holiday coming on Thursday this year, a long weekend should be chocked full of celebration as the Albany/Clinton County Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual fireworks display.

This year, starting at 6 p.m., there are several events going on at the Clinton County Fairgrounds before the fireworks start at 9 p.m.

Admission to the fairgrounds is free and there will be gospel singing inside the grounds, as well as concessions and a veterans memorial display to honor local and regional veterans. The event is the brainchild of Jason and Jennifer Warinner.

Spectators can get comfy in the parking area while listening to music and eating a Bar-B-Q supper.

Last year’s event was cancelled due to dry conditions, but as of press deadline, the event is to be held as scheduled, according to chamber president J.W. Collins.

Collins also said this year’s fireworks should be more involved than in previous years, so come early and stay late for this year’s 7th Annual Fireworks Display held Thursday, July 4 starting at 6 p.m. at the Clinton County Fairgrounds.

Updates to the event can be found on the Albany/Clinton County Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page, as well as on their website at:
