"It is a great event for families to come together to celebrate the blessing of being in this country." -Kim Thomas, Citizens First Bank
It may be a day early but Thunderfest 2013 is expected to have all the bells and whistle of Independence Day.
"It is a great event for families to come together to celebrate the blessing of being in this country." said Kim Thomas of Citizens First Bank.
The event includes live music, Barbeque, inflatables for children,
and of course the event will include lots of fireworks. Though there is a small chance of rain in the forecast, the Thunderfest officials said the weather is usually on their side.
"People should not panic if they wake up and see rain both on the ground or in the forecast. What's happening at 7 O'clock in the morning can be dramatically different then what's happening at nine at night when we're setting off the fireworks." commented Slim Nash of the Kiwanis Club.
"I'm hopeful that this piece of Warren County is out of the 30%. We're definitely hopeful it's no rain and a day just like today." added Thomas.
Thunderfest officials say the night provides a different environment than you may get on your neighborhood street.
"This event is about coming out and seeing people you're not going to see in your local neighborhood firework shows. You're going to see a whole cross section of our community that's going to be at one event doing exactly what we should be doing, that is celebrating our independence and celebrating our diversity." Nash added passionately.
The community has a chance to make a difference in a big way. Admission is $20 per car load and 100% of the proceeds go to area children's charities.
