Knox Mayor Rick Chambers and the fireworks committee this week issued a statement thanking the many people, vendors and organizations that helped to make this year’s fireworks display a success. According to Chambers, the fireworks came at a cost of $988 to the city, less than it has been in the past but more than last year. He said the number of attendees remained about the same as previous years; roughly 500 vehicles paid at the gate to view the fireworks.
Chambers said there are too many people to list individually who he would like to thank, but without the support of the community, he said the fireworks show could not have taken place. The weather was pleasant, a nice crowd showed up and Chambers said the American spirit was in everyone’s hearts as they watched the exciting fireworks and heard the exhilarating booms in the sky.
