Festivities planned for Fourth fireworks

June 21, 2005

Albany- City leaders are still trying to balance next year's budget.

They may cut the annual Fourth of July fireworks, but the show will go on this year. This year, fireworks will be shot from two downtown locations; the Broad Avenue Bridge and behind the Albany Civic Center.

But this could be the last city-sponsored fireworks show for a while.

"There was consideration of not funding the fireworks in 2006 and that's still being discussed, but 2005 fireworks are being planned and a great show and a great night is planned," said Kevin Hogancamp, assistant city manager.

The fireworks will start around 9:45 p.m. on Monday, July 4th. The Bo Henry Band will begin playing in Riverfront Park at 6:30 p.m.
