Montgomery Fireworks June 29 
Save the Date Now!
There will be lots of fun for the whole family on the front lawn of Montgomery High School Thursday, June 29th!  Starting at 6 pm, there will be plenty of games and activities for children, food vendors selling everything from hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken and pizza to delicious deserts like cheesecake, ice cream and the ever-popular kettle corn and funnel cakes. Get there early to get a great picnic spot under the stars!  Feel free to bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the sounds of 'The John Oakes Band' playing hits from today and yesterday at 7:00 pm up on the stage. After the singing of the Star Spangled Banner at dusk (approx. 9:15 pm), get ready for a spectacular display of patriotic fireworks, sure to bring out the kid in everyone!

"Most of all, the spectacular fireworks will be the star of the show!  My thanks to our Corporate Sponsors, who support us year after year, and help ensure that the Montgomery Fireworks provide joy and fun to our entire community" said Recreation Director Karen Zimmerman.
