Fireworks displays speak to freedom | News, Sports, Jobs – The Steubenville Herald-Star

Jul 1, 2022
We ask everyone to take a moment during the next couple of days and remember that, despite of whatever differences we have, there are few nations in the world where citizens are able to gather to celebrate the freedoms residents of the United States of America too often taken for granted.
It’s an important thought as our nation prepares to celebrate its 246th birthday on Monday.
The Fourth of July is a true national holiday, one that is celebrated from the smallest township to the largest city. It’s a day of picnics, family gatherings, parades and summer fun, all played out against the backdrop of American flags and patriotic music. More often than not, the day ends with a fireworks display.
Communities throughout our region are ready to celebrate.
Displays in Wells Township and Cadiz at Sally Buffalo Park will be set off this evening. Other communities in our region have scheduled their fireworks for right around dusk Saturday, including Weirton, Hopedale and Tappan Lake.
Adena will celebrate our nation’s independence Sunday, while Steubenville, Wellsburg, Chester and Hopedale will mark the holiday Monday. Fireworks will continue July 9 in Wintersville and July 10 in Follansbee.
While the Independence Day holiday is a reason to celebrate, we hope that everyone will take a moment to remember the thousands of American men and women who are standing guard around the world as members of our armed forces.
Their sacrifices and vigilance ensure that future generations of Americans will continue to enjoy the freedoms we do today.
Attend an Independence Day celebration.
Marvel at the fireworks.
Enjoy being an American.
