Ah, how the gunpowder will burn and skies light up.
Despite a rocky beginning to fundraising, the second-year Magic Valley Citizens’ Fourth of July fireworks committee is promising the biggest show in area history tonight at the College of Southern Idaho. Volunteer Neil Christensen is even declaring an open race for the No. 1 show in Idaho against Idaho Falls, the reigning champ.
Christensen said it’s the biggest show he’s been a part of in his five years on the committee. This year, the committee joined with the Jerome Events Committee to raise funds on both sides of the canyon and came up with $5,000 more than last year for the show.
