Independence Day celebration tonight in Kearney|
Kearney’s July 3rd Independence Day Celebration and fireworks show returns to the Viaero Event Center for the 13th year in a row. Fireworks will begin about 9:45 p.m. at the Event Center. The night also includes a 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. performance by popular cool country and classic rock band “Bases Loaded” of Kearney. The Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce, which hosts and organizes the fireworks show, teams with the Viaero Event Center each year in presenting the event. Admission to tonight's Independence Day Celebration is free. The Chamber funds the show and uses sponsorships and donations to help offset expenses. Chamber volunteers will be at the entrance the day of the event to accept donations. The Chamber has organized the event since 1992 and moved it to the Viaero Event Center in 2001.
