Fullerton Fireworks a No-Go, Loch Raven Recommended as Alternate

The 2014 fireworks show at Loch Raven will take place Friday night.

The Fullerton fireworks show is on hiatus this Fourth of July.

The organization reported that the Fullerton field project caused the cancellation, but that the show would be back in 2015. In the meantime, the organization recommended hitting the Loch Raven fireworks on July 4 at Loch Raven Technical Academy, 8101 LaSalle Rd.

On the Fullerton Fireworks Facebook page, organization president Mart Fritsch explained why the fireworks were off this year: "Due to the renovation project at Fullerton Field the 2014 Fullerton Fireworks display is being canceled. The Fullerton Fireworks Foundation is sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We have all intentions of providing another great fireworks display in 2015. We are still continuing our fundraising efforts for the 2015 display. If would like to make a donation please send your donation to Fullerton Fireworks Foundation, P.O. Box 19433, Baltimore, MD 21206. Thank you for your continued support."

Board member Donna Bethke added that the organization waited until there was equipment on the field signaling the start of work there before officially announcing the fireworks were off for 2014.

"Many may remember the committee cancelled the fireworks last year when told field renovations would be done starting in April 2013 and then at the last minute the county deferred the field renovations," Bethke said.

The foundation reported that it takes approximately $30,000 to put together the event and community support is needed, as the organization consists of eight volunteers.

A fundraiser is in the works for the fall.
