50th annual Gouverneur Fire Department fireworks spectacular
by Jessyca Cardinell
As everyone celebrated our nation's independence on July 4th, the Gouverneur Volunteer Fire Department proudly hosted the 50th annual fireworks spectacular at the Gouverneur Fairgrounds.
It proved to be a night of fun and thrills for people of all ages, many whom were dressed in their best red, white and blue outfits.
Concession stands were set up with a variety of refreshments and food, including a popular favorite cotton candy. Youngsters enjoyed sparklers and glow sticks as they anxiously waited to see the beautiful display of fireworks lighting up the night sky.
The Gouverneur Fire Department announced that Nelson Bice was the 50/50 raffle winner, and won $700.
As the anticipation came to a high, the National Anthem was wonderfully performed by Allison Carvel and Johanna Sloan, who received a great round of applause.
As darkness fell, loud booms and pops could be heard for miles as fireworks lit up the sky in celebration for the land of the free and home of the brave.
