Thank you for attending the rescheduled Sky Concert with us! It was a great show!
The letter we received from Pyrotechnico – they were embarrassed, too.
The unthinkable happened last night. The fireworks failed to go off. So many people gathered in their chosen viewing locations waiting. At 9:30, the theme from Top Gun started playing and then…..nothing. Our pyrotechnics contractors’ system failed to launch. They quickly divert to the back up system. Nothing.
Thank you so much for sticking with us. It was uncomfortable and mortifying for the committee. A year’s worth of planning and it did not go up in smoke.
The good news? We still have have the rest of the summer to replan and reorganize.
The bad news? We feel horrible about what happened. We will make it up to you on a date to be determined. Please check back often for updates (and on social and traditional media, too).
Thank you so much for all your contributions both big and little. We couldn’t put on this show without the generous donations of our businesses, citizens, citizens from other towns (yes, even GENEVA), etc. None of the fireworks are paid for by city funds. They provide us with Police and Fire (and we thank them for that).
The Batavia Fireworks always take place on July 4th. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and settle in for the best fireworks show in the suburbs!
