City: Fireworks to be the Full Monty

The City of Spokane is out to squelch a rumor that the fireworks display in Riverfront Park will somehow not be up to snuff.

It just sent out a press release assuring people that any suggestion that the display will be only 10 minutes long, as opposed to the standard 20 minutes for “oooh-ing” and “aaaahh-ing”, just ain’t so.

Here’s what they have to say:

We have received calls from some of the public saying they have heard that Riverfront will be cutting the Fourth of July fireworks show to 10 minutes due to a lack of funding.  This is not the case!  Our show will run a full 20-plus minutes thanks to the generosity and support of Larry H. Miller Dealerships and revenue from Park reserved seating which helps offset the cost.  The fireworks show begins at approximately 10:00 pm on Sunday, July 4th.
