Economy hurts fireworks show

The Spokesman-Review
SANDPOINT – Organizers of a Fourth of July fireworks show in this 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 said the fireworks show can cost up to $35,000, is a price tag that major sponsors of past events can no longer afford. This year’s fireworks display in Sandpoint will likely be shortened to about seven to 10 minutes. Members of the Lions Club say they are hopeful they can raise enough money next year to bring the event back to its normal size.
