No Fireworks at Rend Lake This July 4th

BENTON – The Benton-West City Chamber of Commerce announced Monday that the annual fireworks event at Rend Lake will not take place this year due to the financial and physical burden it places on the organization.

The Chamber says it did reach out to other avenues for financial assistance and/or volunteers to work the event but had little success.

The Chamber says if any other organization would like to continue the annual fireworks event, it would be more than happy to share all event information and planning materials.
