Ending the year with a bang

RATHDRUM - Dave Spiker and Royce Driggs are going to end the year by lighting up the Rathdrum Prairie in honor of veterans. The local business owners are sponsoring a $5,000 fireworks show on Monday on New Year's Eve over George Thayer's field at Highway 41 and Lancaster on the south side of Rathdrum starting at 6:45 p.m.

“It will be a heck of a show,” said Spiker, CEO of and a managing member of Golden Spike Estates. “We've been approved by the state to shoot the largest fireworks that you're allowed to do.”

“The main reasons we're doing it is to celebrate our veterans and wish everyone a happy new year.” More here. Brian Walker, Cda Press

How do you usually celebrate on New Year's Eve?
