Northgate Mall saves Colerain Twp. fireworks celebration

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A popular Tri-State Fourth of July fireworks spectacular is back on again. Colerain Township canceled its 15th annual event in January saying budget cuts could not support the show. Enter the new owners of Northgate Mall. T Northgate Mall LLC is spending $20,000 to ignite this year's celebration.

"I was so sad to see that they were going to cancel the fireworks this year and it just makes me so happy to see that we're able to contribute to that and bring it back for everybody in the community," said Northgate Mall general manager, Sue Walkenhorst.

Colerain Township officials say area residents couldn't be happier. "There was a lot of outcry in the community that this is one of their favorite events, " said Coleraiin Township assistant administrator, Frank Birkenhauer.

"I was so disappointed, so disappointed," said resident, Sherry Pelles. "But now, this is the first I've heard. I'm excited. My invitations are going out,."

Lighting up skies in Colerain Township since 1998, the annual Fourth of July Spectacular will again thrill tens of thousands of spectators and keep this northwest Cincinnati suburb at the forefront of Independence Day celebrations.
