Thanks to the efforts of Mike Jones, this year Eureka will still have fireworks. However there will be no music to go with them this year. Usually, KGOE's sister station KRED 92.3 fm plays a simulcast of the fireworks music during the show. The last minute save by Mike Jones and the many contributors will bring to town a different pyrotechnics crew that doesn't have a musical accompaniment. A big festival is still planned for Old Town including over 100 vendors, live music on 2 stages, great food, fine art, crafts, kids activities, kids carnival and more. For more info on the Eureka celebration call 707-442-9054.
Fireworks will also take place in Arcata following the Humboldt Crabs game as well as a display at the Humboldt County Fair Grounds in Ferndale.
The Garberville show has been cancelled due to fire danger and lack of resources.
I'm not ordinarily the kind of local news guy that gets a scoop, but as for the lack of musical accompaniment, you read it here first.
