Are You Ready for the Fourth? Plenty to do in Kingman.
Last year’s fireworks at the Mohave County Fairgrounds were entertaining. This year the Kingman Boomers, which raises money for the show, gathered almost $25,000 in donations to put on this year’s extravaganza. The show is in the center of town, which makes for great viewing parties for those who don’t want to linger in the fairgrounds. That’s the thinking over at the Kingman Presbyterian Church, 2425 Detroit Ave., which is hosting a social event starting at 7 p.m. and ending with a fireworks watching party.
