COSHOCTON COUNTY – The Fourth of July holiday is soon approaching and Coshocton County has two opportunities to see fireworks this year .
On Saturday , July 1 , the White Eyes Township Fireworks Show will be held at the White Eyes Carryout and Fuel , 26366 CR 171 , Fresno beginning at around 10:15 p . m . behind the store . Once again this year , the community has come together to raise $ 2,000 , as of print time , to make this show possible . The entire fireworks show will cost around $ 3,000 and promises to be bigger and better than last year .
“ My brother got me started when I was young just playing around with fireworks ,” said Wes McKee who is hosting the show . “ My brother is in the Marines and it started as trying to do something for him and it just grew from that .”
“ My wife and I got engaged one of the nights we did the fireworks .”
Open To
The Public
-Wes McKee
The fireworks show takes months to plan and set up the display to music using computer music software . But it ’ s well worth the effort and had such a huge community response last year that they had between 500 – 800 people come to watch the fireworks .
