PRINCETON, WV (LOOTPRESS)– Want to see a free fireworks show? The Princeton Rescue Squad is hosting an Independence Day celebration at Princeton High School.
This event is free to the public at the Hunnicutt Stadium. Activities include a kids’ corner, pottery painting, balloon artists, waterslides, and games. A car show will begin at 9:00 am until 2:00 pm at the Princeton High School parking lot.
Chief Executive Officer of Princeton Rescue Squad, Stacey Hicks, asks residents to bring canned goods for the event donated to local food pantries.
“We haven’t had as many donations as we normally get. So the only way this can continue to be free is with donations and sponsors,” said Hicks.
Last year, the rescue squad was only able to give a fireworks show because of Covid.
“I think this year is going to be a good opportunity to get out and enjoy life. That’s what Independence Day is all about enjoying our freedoms,” said Hicks.
Five bands will be performing starting at 1:00 pm and carry into the fireworks show around 10:00 pm. Headlining this event will be On The Border. Other bands include The High Rise Band, Beach Night Band, The Furrows, and Transit Times.
Residents and sponsors can give tax-deductible donations to the Princeton Rescue Squad at 701 Stafford Drive, Princeton, WV 24740.
