GLR News Update
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The company hired to execute the Marquette July 4th fireworks show has apologized for the technical failure of this year’s show and has offered the Fireworks Committee a refund.
In a statement released today, the Marquette Area 4th of July Fireworks Committee says Great Lakes Fireworks, LLC contacted them recently with a full apology and explanation for what happened to cause the display to end short.
The company also did not charge for the fireworks that were used, offered a $20,000 refund to the committee and only kept a portion of the funds to cover crew wages and certain costs including transportation to the Marquette Lower Harbor.
The Fireworks Committee says they have voted to continue to function through next year and hope to work together to make 2015’s Fourth of July Celebration the best ever.
