July 4th Celebration/Community Party
It will soon be time to celebrate our Country's birthday! This year we will offer much the same as in previous years, EXCEPT, we're raffling off some very nice items and we will be fortunate enough to be entertained by musical group Bombshell from Columbia.
All plans will be finalized in the coming days and published here. Yes, the Best Firehouse BBQ around will be available as will other food vendors. Based on the demand from last year there will be a good supply of funnel cakes too! So, check back for all the final details and make sure to review the below.
FIREWORKS. We have, in past years, put on the Best Displays in the Upstate. We hope to make these displays pale in this years efforts. Here is the catch. We can't use Department/Taxpayer monies to pay for this or, in fact, any part of our celebrations. So, we have setup a GoFundMe page asking for donations to help defray costs. This party is a great way to have good clean fun for the family and meet and greet new and old friends. Our Community is growing very quickly. To make a contribution please go here. The more money we raise, the better the show.
RAFFLES. This is so good. Again, thanks to Amazon of Spartanburg, we have some excellent prizes to give away this year. First is an above ground pool package (see photo below)! It includes a 24'X53" deep pool, filter and pump, skimmer, ladder. solar cover and a supply of chlorine salt and instructions. NOTE:THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE POOL SETUP!! There will additional prizes that will be announced later. HOW TO WIN: Tickets are $1.00 each with a maximum of only 3000 tickets being sold. They can be purchased at the Fire Department beginning June 4. They will also be available all day on July 4. Each ticket will be eligible for all prizes. The winner(s) will be announced at 9:15 pm right before the fireworks display at 9:30 pm. (Keep reading below the picture).
MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT I think we have another homerun here. The very popular Cover Band BombShell with a native from our community, Amy (Jeffcoat) Ward. When I heard this I checked them out...they are good (IMHO). They perform hits from the 60's to present day with emphasis on the 80's. To listen to a demo of their music go here. This demo goes just under 5 minutes then something else is played. Just watch the play meter on screen. The demo is a mix of several songs/genres. Enjoy.
