Lake Gaston Annual Fireworks Display Saturday, July 1

Lake Gaston Association

The Lake Gaston Annual Fireworks display is Saturday, July 1 (rain date July 2) at dark, at Eaton Ferry Bridge. It’s an event that draws boats from east and west of the bridge by the hundreds. And depending on your preference for the best spot, you may leave home early enough to be up by the bridge. It’s definitely an experience – watching the fireworks from a boat, and to see the amount of boats that turn out for the event.

You may not realize that Longbridge Volunteer Fire Department organizes this event and they rely on donations to fund the fireworks event. Because it is a public event, and as you know fireworks are much, much bigger & more sophisticated than they used to be, a pyrotechnic company has to be engaged to
handle the fireworks.

Donations can be made any time of the year. Checks should be mailed to Longbridge VFD, 1678 Eatons Ferry Road, Littleton NC 27850, Memo: Fireworks. For more information you can contact Robert Haislip (252) 532-3543 or Bruce Dunlevy (252) 532-5225.
