Eau Claire’s Fourth of July Fireworks aren’t moving, but at least one member of the city council isn’t sure the city needs fireworks this year.
The council on Tuesday deadlocked over whether to move the fireworks show from Carson Park. Firefighters and other city leaders say the show at Carson Park could be dangerous, and is expensive. They want to move the fireworks show to the High Bridge. Some say there are some ‘downsides’ to having a fireworks show at all. Right now, the Fourth of July show in limbo because of the ‘unanswered questions.’
