Kiwanis meets goal to bring back fireworks


For The Madera Tribune

Members of Greater Kiwanis of Madera, city and county leaders meet at The Vineyard Restaurant to celebrate the return of Madera’s annual Fourth of July fireworks showcase. Donations are currently being accepted for next year’s event.

 

For Rohi Zacharia, co-president of the Greater Kiwanis of Madera, what started off as an idea, has now come to fruition.


Zacharia’s determination and hard work has made it possible to bring back Madera’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular Display and Celebration Show at the Madera Fairgrounds.


Madera City and County leaders came to the table with a willingness to help the Kiwanis Club make this possible.


“It took all of us, along with our corporate sponsors to meet our goal,” said Zacharia.


Madera City Council and co-president of the Greater Kiwanis Club, Jose Rodriguez, spoke at the final Fourth of July meeting to provide members an expense report along with any final answers to questions and housekeeping matters prior to the event.


In addition to the main event, attendants will also enjoy a ground level effect show. Food trucks, live music and carnival games for the kids will make this family-friendly event a success.


It’s not too late to donate, as seed money is needed for next year’s show, which will be helpful to secure the event.


Come early, bring lawn chairs to the Madera Fairgrounds, at 1850 Cleveland Ave. Admission is free, and there will be a free shuttle service available.
