TOLEDO, Ohio – The city of Toledo will at least have fireworks in July.
On Friday, July 2nd, fireworks will take place in the city center over the Maumee River for Independence Day, Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz announced on Tuesday. The city announced last week that they had been canceled due to supply chain issues.
“It was never a question of desire, never a question of funding, never a question of health restrictions,” said Kapszukiewicz. “We always wanted fireworks on July 4th, but our supplier told us there would be no delays in the supply chain. Allow him to put on a show. So basically we’ve found a new salesperson, and I couldn’t be happier that we’re going to have a real party in downtown Toledo on the 4th of July weekend. “
The city council on Tuesday approved a $ 30,000 spending on the cost of the exhibit. Another $ 30,000 will be raised privately.
