I spoke with Mayor Chris Cail about the upcoming event.  Not only is he personally excited about the return of fireworks, many people in the community are as well. Here are some of their social media reactions:

Teresa Faucett- I’m glad to see this. I’m so happy for our town to celebrate the 4th again.

Emily Riley- This is so awesome. It was crazy last year Troy had something but not tell City. I knew we could do better and I’m glad we are.

Emily James- Kudos to Chris Cail for bringing back this tradition!! He’s done so much for TC in such a short amount of time. I continue to be so impressed by his determination and hard work!! From the remodel of the pool to the fireworks. Also, many of the streets around town are finally getting a much-needed paving…….he is getting work done!!!

Mayor Cail says it's been about a decade since Tell City hosted fireworks on 4th of July Weekend and he's thrilled to share the opportunity for that tradition to return. I asked him what prompted the decision to bring the fireworks back and he said, "I wanted to see us bring back some of the great things I remembered as a kid and fireworks on the 4th was one of them."

Ten Fireworks You Need for Your 4th of July Celebration

With 4th of July just around the corner, I decided to share a list of some of my favorite fireworks on the market right now. Some are brand new. Some have been around forever and continue to maintain their popularity. But, if you're planning to host a 4th of July party or you're taking fireworks to one, check this out. Fun fact. I sold fireworks for years and years and have helped plan hundreds of fireworks shows. Here are ten fireworks that will absolutely light up the sky and your Independence Day celebration. And, the best part, these are all available commercially. #LetFreedomRing
