Firefighter Vidal Vega will coordinate the Fire Explorers group of young men and women, who want to be firefighters. They will working in one of the many food booths, preparing hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and sodas.

There will be games, including a hula-hooping contest, pie- and watermelon-eating contests, and many more for the kids.

It will be a day full of fun for the whole family, and when the sun sets, the fireworks will fill the sky with amazing colors of sparkling fireworks. You won’t want to miss this year’s Fourth of July Rotary Fireworks Festival.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
