"Looks like the fireworks have been canceled again. Both the and TV 12 are reporting that. I appreciate you putting the word out on your blog about them being scheduled, but you might want to inform your readers it's off."
First it appears Flint's annual Fourth of July fireworks display is cancelled, and now it appears it's not.
Matt Bach, the public relations manager for the Flint Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, writes:
"I wanted to let everyone know that the Flint DDA and some corporate sponsors agreed this morning to help fund a fireworks show in downtown Flint on Friday, July 3. It's tentatively being planned for 7-11 p.m. at Atwood Stadium. You may have seen that the local and national media was reporting last night and this morning that the fireworks were cancelled. But, like many of us had hoped, once the word got out they were in jeopardy some people stepped up to the plate.
"Sponsors of the fireworks include the Flint DDA, Citizens Bank, Health Plus, attorney Loyst Fletcher Jr., Shape the Future Things to Come, Shedd, Frasier and Grossman attorneys in Flushing and the Downtown Flint Small Business Association."
