Anyone can say what they want about Freeport and Illinois but this happens everywhere even in Wisconsin which is supposed to be so much better than here. Times are not the same and they are a changin! We can complain or contribute, be a part of the solution :) Thanks to all who contributed and volunteered to Freeport's fireworks festival. m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2489435657786878&id=357739980956467&anchor_composer=false ...

Go to an area county fair and see what they have and see if that could be an option for you. Check out the Lena Fall Festival, talk to them.
What games did you have? Are you looking for something for young kids, teens, both? Trying to think what might be good.
Did the city of freeport donate any money?

That grand finale 😍😍😍 Now we've been reading some social media comments that the fireworks were a "waste of time" "not a good show" etc.
So... if you did not enjoy the fireworks. What's your idea of a good show?

There were no complaints from the group we sat with. We were all very pleased! Thank you!
Thank you for your efforts throughout the year to raise money for this event. Great event for the community!
We thought the fireworks were great! We weren't able to attend the festivities earlier in the day but hope to next year! Keep it up!
I thought the show was very good. I was expecting less but it was a very nice time. Great job to all involved. ❤
I thought it was a great show!!! Thank you for donating countless hours and putting this together. Much appreciated.
I thought the show was very good!

We loved it!
We loved it!
We are so thankful that a show took place. We enjoyed it.😊
We LOVED IT!!!
The festivities where time well invested. :)
They were amazing.
We thought they were pretty good too!
I don't know If they were synced to music this year, but if this is an option, but we were out in the parking lot at the fairgrounds watching them and it would have been nice to have music going to them that you could hear outside
I donated, but did not go ... so I can't comment good or bad. However, I can comment on the number of text messages I personally received Saturday and the number of calls we received at the radio station in the days leading up to the fireworks, asking which station was playing the fireworks music. When I told them that none, they were all shocked. Several commented that without music, it will be like all the other fireworks in the neighboring towns. Freeport fireworks offered something unique and different.
For many years Q102 and K92 would play the music from a CD provided to us by the fireworks company (we did not select the music). It not only adds to the show to have the music in sync with the fireworks, but it's nice having music in between blasts (instead of waiting 5 to 10 seconds or more between each display ... it tends to be somewhat boring).
If every resident of Stephenson County donated just $2.00 to the cause, can you imagine the awesome show that could be put on and in sync with the music??!!! That's not asking for much (cheaper than a cappuccino or a bottle of beer).
I thought they were awesome!! People who complain have no idea how much time and energy you put into this event! If they’re looking for Disney World Quality they better head south! 😆 Keep up the good work!!
My daughter came down from Wisconsin and we were out there with the grandchildren I thought it was the best fireworks Freeport had in a long time so I don't know what everybody's complaining about they didn't donate they should just shut up
We loved it
I have heard many good things.
It was a great show!
I didn't go, but my teenage daughter & her friends thought they were good. Some people just need to complain.
What people don't remember is Freeport did not put on this show, Freeport could not afford them and find it in their budget to celebrate. So the residents donated money to put on the show.
It was great! Job well done!!! Those people complaining need to help in the fundraising for next year or just shut the hell up!
Tickets go on sale September 1st!! We want to get all the stops locked in FIRST :)
