There is no better time to celebrate America than on the anniversary our Declaration of Independence, the 4th of July. The last two years the Wauseon Fireman’s Association has stepped up to provide a grand celebration for our city without using tax-payer funds. This year the Homecoming Committee and the Parks and Recreation Department along with other local volunteers have stepped up to assist us with this kick-off to a great holiday weekend.
After two successful years and a growing tradition for the City this year’s celebration is slated to be bigger and better than ever. On Friday July 4th the City of Wauseon is sponsoring a corn-hole tournament, a baseball tournament, local and regional food vendors, and a beer garden that will be open to people of all ages. In addition, the band Sugar Frog will entertain the crowd with rock-n-roll music before and after the 10:00 p.m. fireworks spectacular that will be presented by the Wauseon Fireman’s Association. This year we are featuring a pyro-musical display synchronized to a sound system that everybody in Biddle Park will be able to enjoy.
This cost of this event is easily going to approach the $25,000 level, and support from the entire community of Wauseon is needed to produce a successful celebration that everybody will remember. With the assistance from businesses such as yours we can make this event one that people from all over Northwest Ohio will come to Wauseon to experience.
Any donation that you can consider towards sponsoring this event would be greatly appreciated and can be sent directly to the Fire Department. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at the Wauseon Fire Department.
