1,000 Fireworks to Light the Sky
The City and the Edgewater Professional Firefighters have teamed up to create a fun filled 4th of July event for the community and visitors.
The day will begin with a 5K walk/run along South Riverside Drive. All proceeds from the 5K will be donated to the Wounded Warrior project. Runners/walkers can register online at www.altavistasports.com or at 6:30 a.m. on the day of the event. The course will take participants along scenic Riverside Drive. Food and drinks will be available for sale at the start/finish line.
There will be food and other various vendors at Menard-May Park and George R. Kennedy Park beginning at 5:00 p.m. Live entertainment will be provided beginning at 6:45 PM by the Smyrna Brass Quintet from the Cuchetti School of Music. The day will culminate with a spectacular fireworks show by Zambelli Fireworks. The show will last about thirty minutes with 1000 fireworks launched into the sky over Edgewater and is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
Members of the Edgewater Professional Firefighters will be raffling off a new Perception Sport 9 ½ foot kayak with a paddle and personal floatation device leading up to 4th of July and at the event as well. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. All proceeds from the drawing will be going towards the cost of the fireworks. The drawing will be on the 4th of July just prior to the fireworks show and the winner does not need to be present.
