Prescott fireworks show brightens Fourth of July night sky
At 9:00 sharp Thursday night the Prescott Fourth of July fireworks show went off into clear skies Thursday night in celebration of the 248th anniversary of rejection of rule by the British crown.

The display began after a recording of a solo vocalist's rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" came to "And the rockets red glare." At that point the lights on Cummins Stadium went out and the initial launch of a streamer burst into multicolored sparks, beginning a show that ran over half an hour as the sound system continued with Lee Greenwood, Toby Keith, Darryl Worley and other country singers.

The show, sponsored by the City of Prescott and the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber of Commerce, was put on by the Prescott Fire Department with the help of other city workers who sent the boomers up from just south of Prescott High School's Cummins Stadium.

About five hundred attended. They had their pick of three food trucks, including one from Prescott Lions Club, Hurricane Henry's Shaved Ice and Rolling Stone. Donations of food were also taken by Rotary Club members.
