Fireworks Return to Rapid City in July 2017

The Rapid City Council has approved moving the city's fireworks display back to the Fourth of July. Drought and fire concerns caused the display to be moved to New Year's Eve in 2012; the following year the council voted to make this change permanent. At last week's Legal & Finance Committee, Alderman Steve Laurenti proposed moving the display back to the Fourth of July, as reported by the Rapid City Journal. Although it is too late to schedule a company for this year, staff have been instructed to look into what will need to be done to have fireworks in July 2017.

Past stories on fireworks can be found in the news archive.
