LC Valley Community Spirit Fireworks Show Includes Vendors, Live Band at Adams Field on Monday

CLARKSTON — The 37th Annual Lewis-Clark Valley Community Spirit Fireworks pre-show and aerial display are scheduled for Monday at Adams Field in Clarkston.
The committee hopes to have an abundant crowd of viewers to the field at Clarkston High School and has purchased some additions for this year’s show, with gates opening at 6 p.m.

“We’re excited to welcome back our local family-oriented festivities after these two years without the local traditions,” said John Sullivan, president of Community Spirit Fireworks that organizes the show. “We are planning some wonderful drawings and giveaways to share our appreciation for community members who have supported us over the years.”

American Insurance is the presenting sponsor this year in honor of its 100-year anniversary. Sullivan, who is the chief executive officer of the independent insurance agency, has specifically purchased special ground show shells that will enhance the view of the show for closer spectators. Fireworks will conclude the pre-show festivities right at 10 p.m. following the national anthem. The annual show has been organized in conjunction with major sponsors McVey Entertainment Group.

The musical show will accompany the aerial fireworks on the McVey stations, which
include Z-Rock 96.5, TalkRadio 95.5/950AM, Canyon Country 106.9, KRLC Hometown Radio 93.1/1350AM and The River 105.1.

Local food vendors will include returning vendors Lil Manz Donuts and Wilson Banner Ranch, and newcomers Lola’s Red Hot Grill, Papa Rick’s Kettle Corn, and Hot Rod Dogs.

The live local band, Slackwater Rollers, will begin at 8 p.m. on the stage.

The 2022 fireworks display is made possible by the generous donations from business sponsors in the LC valley, including major sponsors of American Insurance McVey Entertainment Group, P1FCU and Vista Outdoor.

Giveaway drawings every 30 minutes include gift certificates donated by Vista Outdoor, Hells Canyon Grand Hotel, Roosters & Hazels, Happy Day Restaurants, McVey Entertainment Group, and the Asotin County Family Aquatic Center. The grand prize final drawing is for an electronic bicycle valued at $2,500 donated by Vista Outdoor.

“We hope to make this show the most memorable as we have so much to be grateful for this year – both from the Community Spirit Fireworks team including Angie and Lee McVey, and from the Sullivan family and staff at American Insurance as we continue to celebrate 100 years in the valley,” Sullivan concluded.
