COMSTOCK—The community of Comstock is ready to celebrate the 4th of July with a day full of outdoor activities for the whole family. A sand volleyball tournament, a cruise, kids races, softball/baseball, and fireworks will all be taking place and hosted this year by the Comstock Patriots.
In an interview with KCNI/KBBN, Deb Ritz said Comstock was incorporated as a village in 1906 and she believes the July 4 celebration has been going on since that time. She said Comstock has seen great community support from dedicated individuals, groups, and businesses through the years.
“What we’re going to do is try our best to keep our celebration as traditional as we’ve had it in the past,” Ritz said.
However, Ritz added there will be no BBQ, no pie/ice cream in the Den this year, and no alumni events.
