Fireworks

Clinton County Fireworks Association

The Clinton County Fireworks Association has entertained thousands of guests for the past 30 years on the 4th of July. This magnificent extravaganza has been held at the Grand Mound Ball Park and has grown to be one of the biggest displays in the state of Iowa and surrounding states.

This display is operated entirely by volunteers and all the fireworks are purchased by donations and entrance revenue the night of the show. Making plans for each year’s show takes the whole year to prepare and starts as soon as the display has been shown on July 4th. There is a great deal of planning that goes into each year’s show. They always try adding something new and different each year. In 2008, 7,600 shells were used on the display with the value of the show at $37,000, 

A DJ entertains before the show and local talent offer the National Anthem. All newcomers to our town will be amazed at the show and the many people in town on July 4th.
