(Edited 06/12/18 with corrected website address.)

Area citizens are invited to come and watch a large personally funded fireworks display at New Melle Sports and Recreation on Wednesday, July 4th, 2018. The display is courtesy of New Melle Mayor Richard West and his wife Lori.

The concession stand will be open for drinks and snacks (no burgers, etc.) The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. The display is expected to start around 8:30 p.m. or whenever it gets dark enough.

Prior to the display, a pig roast fundraiser will be held for State Representative Bryan Spencer. Details for that are available at

Attendance or support of the fundraiser is not required to attend and enjoy the fireworks display.
