HUMBOLDT Humboldt will continue its nearly 30-year-old tradition of a July 3 fireworks show on Wednesday, courtesy of the Humboldt Lions.
The tradition began in 1991 and since inception, fireworks have shot into the heavens from the golf course at the north edge of town.
Initially, afternoon games and food booths in the downtown square made for a daylong event. Today, a more modest version exists. This year, wrestling supporters will sell pork burgers and hot dogs at the southeast corner of the golf course. Another popular feature is a display of radio-controlled aircraft, compliments of a club in Chanute.
