The return of an old tradition came with a tremendous success as hundreds attended the Colusa County Fairgrounds Fireworks Show.

Many filled the grandstands at the Colusa County Fairgrounds for the annual fireworks show, while others tailgated in the parking lot and surrounding area.

“I feel like a kid again,” said one attendee as she left the grandstands with a smile on her face.

The 2016 Colusa County Fireworks Show was moved to the Colusa County Fairgrounds after worries of visibility.

“The show on the Sacramento River has been a great event for many years, but as the trees along the bank have grown they have begun to block the view of the fireworks,” said Reische, “After discussing this with Colusa Fair CEO Jonathan Howard we think we have come up with an even better venue for the show by moving it to the fairgrounds.”

The fireworks show is made possible by the numerous contributions made by local businesses and community members.

The honor guard for the event was served by the Colusa County VFW Post 2441 and the Maxwell American Legion Post 218.
