An elaborate display of fireworks will once again be presented at
the 2014 Delavan Fall Festival. The Delavan Fall Festival has
contracted with Central States Fireworks. Fireworks will be held in
Lake Park at dusk on SUNDAY night, August 31. At the request of
festivalgoers, a couple of years ago, the festival board made this
change of day for the fireworks. The change in schedule was well
received so the 2014 fireworks display will remain on SUNDAY night.
Grab your blanket and/or lawn chair and come join the excitement of
all the colorful fireworks display. See you there.
