No fireworks at Fonner Park this year

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- If you were hoping to catch a fireworks show at Fonner Park this 4th of July, you're out of luck.

There will be no display taking place this year.

Fonner Park CEO Chris Kotulak says this year's pricing for category 4 professional display fireworks was sky high and there were no sponsors for the event.

In the past, the display has always been supported by local business owners and Fonner Park.

Kotulak went on to say the marketplace and availability for many items has been thrown out of whack due to the pandemic, and he is hopeful the fireworks display will resume in 2022.
