Raccoon Lake fireworks July 6

News Release

---- — The public is invited to a fireworks show at dusk on Saturday at Cecil M. Harden (Raccoon) Lake in Rockville.

The fireworks will cap off Raccoon State Recreation Area’s annual Beach Bash and Fireworks Display. Activities start at 10 a.m. and include a sidewalk chalk art contest, crafts and a cornhole tournament at 6 p.m.

The fireworks are sponsored by Raccoon SRA, Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department and the Raccoon Lake/Union Township Property Owners Association. The fireworks are paid for through donations from the community and park visitors.

After 5 p.m. gate admission will be waived; however, the Bellmore VFD will be collecting donations for next year’s show.

Anyone interested in helping with the cost of the fireworks show should contact Mike Clingerman, Raccoon SRA property manager, or Michelle Swick, interpretive naturalist, at 765-344-1412.
