It’s back to the basics for Colerain Township on July 1, when they’ll be resurrecting the popular 4th of July fireworks celebration at the Colerain Township Administration Complex.
The Colerain community has been calling for the return of the fireworks since they were discontinued several years ago. Township officials were listening, and late last year they decided to resurrect the family-friendly event for 2017.
But this isn’t just about the fireworks. The all-day event will also feature mouthwatering food from area food trucks and a rockin’ local band that’ll put on some (purely figurative) fireworks of their own.
That band, the Belairs is a Las Vegas-style show group playing 1950s and 1960s music, complete with costumes and choreography. All of which will beg the question: “Fireworks? What fireworks?”
Then 9:45 p.m. will roll around, you'll sing the National Anthem, and the show will begin. “Oh," you'll think, "those fireworks.”
They’ll be pretty stunning. So stunning that you’ll assume they were professionally done at great expense to the Colerain community. Not so. In fact they're being organized by retired Colerain Assistant Fire Chief Rick Niehaus, whose concern for fireworks safety is reassuring to those of us hoping to bring our entire families to the event.
So gather your friends and family, grab a blanket and a few chairs, and head down to the Colerain Township Administration Complex July 1 for some good food, great music, and a patriotic spectacle unlike any other.
The Colerain Township 4th of July fireworks celebration will be held July 1. For more information, visit the Colerian Township website.
