The fireworks celebration hosted by the city of Knox is scheduled for July 5 at the Starke County Airport.
A recent fundraiser at Downtown Depot raised $1,562 and business donations have totaled $1,976 so far. Another fundraiser is scheduled for this Friday, June 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. CT at the Knox Moose Family Center. The Starke County Commissioners personally donated money toward the event as well as the town of Hamlet and the town of North Judson.
There are plenty of activities to happen prior to the fireworks at dusk. Several vendors have committed to serving food and entertainment. Gates will open at 4 p.m. and the fireworks show will begin at dusk.
Volunteers are needed to work the gates. If you are interested in volunteering your time for this event, call Knox Mayor Rick Chambers at (574) 772-4553.
