After being forced to cancel its July 4th fireworks show, the City of Hazelwood made good on its promise to reschedule on Saturday, Sept. 22, when more than 2,000 people showed up at White Birch Park to enjoy a special double-feature show.
“We couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was a lot milder than the triple-digit temperatures we were having around the Fourth of July,” said Tim Davidson, Hazelwood’s communications manager, adding that drought conditions in the area improved with the recent rain trends. “There was less concern about drifting fallout from exploding rockets causing brush fires in the park and to surrounding residential properties.”
Residents and their guests could be seen tossing footballs and Frisbees around with the kids and just hanging out while they listened to Super Jam’s tribute to the 70s and 80s.
One Hazelwood mother said her son, Isaac, was elated when he heard about the city rescheduling its fireworks display.
"He was really disappointed about the City cancelling its Fourth of July fireworks show. He thought the city had thrown away all the fireworks,” Jailethe Judy said. “But he got excited when the city sent us a phone message saying they were rescheduling the fireworks show. It made his day."
