Starke County Fireworks Fundraiser Set for May 16

 In just a few short months, America will be celebrating another birthday. The City of Knox is hoping to offset costs of a local celebration with several fundraisers.

A port-a-pit chicken sale is set during the city-wide yard sale in May. This fundraiser will be May 16 at the Knox South Side Fire Station. Volunteers will sell half chicken orders for $7.00 plus pit-tatoes for $3.00 from 10 a.m. until sold out. All proceeds will benefit the county-wide fireworks celebration on Friday, July 3.

Tickets for this event can be purchased at Knox City Hall.

Mad Bomber will be putting on this year’s annual fireworks celebration at the Starke County Airport. The company has been hosting the show for the past several years. The celebration will begin shortly after dusk.

With less money coming into the city’s budget, fundraising efforts are underway in order to gather funds for the popular holiday event.
