Sandpoint Cuts Back On Fireworks Show

Organizers of a Fourth of July fireworks show in this northern Idaho lakeside town say the economic downturn will force them to scale back on the 30-minute spectacle of lights. John Hunt of the Sandpoint Lions Club says the fireworks show can cost up to $35,000, which is a price tag that major sponsors of the event in the past can no longer afford. This years fireworks display in Sandpoint will likely be shortened to about seven to 10 minutes/Bonner County Bee. More here.

Question: Is it important to you that community’s that traditionally offer a fireworks show continue to do so during these hard economic times?
