Fundraising Event Scheduled to Support Starke County Fireworks Show

The Starke County Fireworks Committee is working on preparations for the annual fireworks event at the Starke County Airport on July 6.

The event has not always been self-supporting which has initiated the committee’s need to conduct fundraisers in an effort to defray costs incurred by the city of Knox. One fundraiser is set for May 18 at 10 a.m. at the Knox Southside Fire Station. Nelson’s Port-a-Pit Chicken will be sold. The cost for half of a chicken is $7 and Pit-Tatoes will be $3. Pre-sale tickets are available at the Knox Mayor’s Office.

The fireworks event will be Saturday, July 6 at the Starke County airport with the gates opening at 6 p.m. and the show beginning at dusk. Entertainment will be offered before the fireworks show and you are invited to go early for a good parking spot and to enjoy the festivities. There will be a gate fee.
