Fireworks in Kearney, Missouri...!!!
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
They reserve the 3rd of July to bring 10's of 1000's to the little village of Kearney, MO for a fantastic fireworks display. It is my understanding that this festival has been been going on for over 60 years.
It used to feature the ladies of the community serving up home made ice cream for all the kids and adults to enjoy.
It has grown and grown into one of the premier fireworks displays in the Kansas City area...yet still remains one that you have to "know about it", as it is less publicized than most.
So if you are anywhere near Kearney, MO on the 3rd of July and are looking to enjoy one of the best fireworks displays this side of New York City......tell your friends.
But know that you should plan on coming early, as those who arrive late will indeed see some of the best pyrotechnic displays, but will be waiting up to an hour to get back on the road....but somehow, it is all worth it...!!!
