BETHALTO — St. Louis Regional Airport is set to host the eighth annual Bethalto Fireworks Celebration on Sunday, June 29th.
Cornerstone Church of Bethalto began the family-friendly event in 2007 as a gift to the local community and has continued to stage the celebration each year. The event will open at 5 p.m. and will include bouncers, games, food, horse rides, music, and a craft fair and vendor sale. The fireworks, provided by Central States Fireworks, will serve as the grand finale starting at 9:15 p.m.
The activities and entertainment are free. This year’s entertainment will include acts for the Bethalto Voice Talent Competition and The Hampel Family Circus. Food, soda and bottled water are available for purchase. Kona Ice of St. Louis will be onsite once again with their shaved ice. Church volunteers will be cooking up thousands of hot dogs and hamburgers, along with serving nachos to keep prices to a minimum. Back by popular demand this year will be pulled-pork sandwiches and pork chops. Because the celebration is a family-friendly event, guests are asked that no alcohol or coolers be brought onto the airport grounds.
Applications are still being accepted for craft and vendor space. For information about the Bethalto Fireworks Celebration, visit www.BethaltoFireworks.com or call the church at (618) 377-7625.
