Cities host different Fourth of July celebrations

You can't set off fireworks in the city limits, but that doesn't mean your Fourth of July celebration has to fizzle out.

The city of Kingman will be firing off its annual display, thanks to the help of the Kingman Boomers, after dark Wednesday at the Mohave County Fairgrounds. The gates open at 6 p.m. The cost to park is $2.

The Northern Mohave County Patriots will also be holding an old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration all day at Firefighters Memorial Park, 2001 Detroit Ave., with races, games, a dunk tank, food, vendors and music.

In order to raise funds for next year's fireworks, the Kingman Boomers are holding a golf tournament at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course, 1001 Gates Ave. Registration starts at 7 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Wednesday. The cost is $75 per person or $300 per team. The format is a four-person scramble. Registration forms must be received by July 2. For more information, call Levi Pitts at (928) 753-6593.

Lake Havasu City's display starts at 9 p.m. Wednesday at Rotary Park, 1400 Smoke Tree Ave. The event includes music. Bring your boat and float on the lake while watching the display.

Laughlin's annual river celebration with decorated boats, music and fireworks starts at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.
