Kearney – Kearney's July 3 Independence Day Celebration and fireworks show
returns to the Viaero Event Center for the 13th year in a row.
Fireworks will begin
about 9:45 p.m. at the Event Center and admission to the July 3 Independence
Day Celebration is free.
The night also
includes a 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. performance by popular country and classic
rock band "Bases Loaded" of Kearney. The free show is presented by LandMark
Implement. Tri-City Storm Hockey is hosting a kids zone, and Cabela's is
sponsoring a BB Gun shoot from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Kearney Area
Chamber of Commerce, which hosts and organizes the fireworks show, teams with
the Viaero Event Center each year in presenting the event.
Families are invited
to gather and tailgate in the evening prior to the fireworks display. Grilled
hamburgers, hot dogs and non-alcoholic beverages will be sold on site. Those
attending also are allowed to bring their own food and beverages.
The Chamber funds the
show and uses sponsorships and donations to help offset expenses. Chamber
volunteers will be at the entrance the day of the event to accept donations.
