Read in the paper today that this annual event has been cancelled because of no money in the budget.Very sad if you ask me,but I'm not surprised anyway.I've seen many great concerts there during the 4th,America,Pat Benatar,Peter Frampton,only to name a few.If they could charge you for fireworks,they would.I wonder what's next in this economy that we all loved & so used to going to as a family.
That was always a nice event, but it does make sense why it was cancelled. Each and every town feels they need to have their own fireworks and seperate events. Those things cost a lot of money. Last year my town didn't have fireworks citing the expense and that there were no less than 15 other communities within a 15 mile radius that were having fireworks that day. They saved the money and rolled it into the town's carnival day capped off with fireworks, but that event is heavily subsidized by local businesses.
In Camden County, I was always surprised that the various little towns didn't pool resources to put on a combined event. It would cost everyone a lot less and would be of better quality than what most towns do.
You'd have to pay me a lot more than $10 to suffer through Styx & Yes.
