Palm Coast's July 4 Fireworks a Tremendous Success!

There was controversy...  Officials and Folks in Flagler Beach didn't like the idea that Palm Coast got in on "their" traditional fireworks displays this year.

There were challenges... City of Palm Coast surprised the folks by passing on the sponsorship due to budget concerns.  It was a last minute arrangement, only 30 days to promote, could the organizers get the word out? Would the event fail?

There were questions...  It was a stormy weekend, was there weather going to cooperate?  Would Palm Coasters and visitors show up?

But, they came... Thousands upon thousands have come.  People not only filled up the City Park, but occupied every parking space, and every piece of green as far as the new Epic Theater, the Imagine School, and the Flagler Palm Coast High School.  They tailgated, set up their lawn chairs, picnicked, shot their own fireworks, listen to music...

The Inaugural Palm Coast Tailgate Party and Fireworks were a tremendous success.  Championed by David Ayres of WNZF Radio Station, the Rotary Club of Flagler County jumped in and organized the event.  WNZF, the Palm Coast Observer, Palm Coast Ford Dealership and many others chipped in. 

Here's a 4-minute video with the complete experience from the Inaugural Palm Coast Fireworks:

Kudos to Palm Coast's Rotary Club of Flagler County, and WNZF for championing and hosting this successful event.  Based on its success, this is not a one-time event, it will repeat year-after-year...
