It was an absolutely perfect night for fireworks last Friday night. The annual fireworks display in Quincy took place at the Illinois Veterans Home. In other years it has been held on the Quincy Riverfront. So I ask the question, if you had to make the decision on where the fireworks display should take place for next July 4, would you select the Illinois Veteran's Home or the Quincy Riverfront (or someplace else)?
They will be scared and they won’t be able to tell you so please be aware that dogs maybe as faithful as you are to your country but they are petrified of fireworks. So on this Independence Day please keep them in mind and provide them a secure place away from the noise of fireworks going off.
Before you head out for a fireworks display, please find a way NOT to take your dog with you. A fear of fireworks is commonplace for dogs. They find the loud noise and bright displays of light truly frightening.The good news is that there are a few things you can do to help your dog make it through the Fourth of July festivities.
Independence Day is perfect for outdoor family fun. It's also the one time of year when it’s seems to be okay to play with matches. Family fun and playing with matches may seem like an unlikely combo, but hey, so is America, right?
The Fourth of July is not far away, which means there will be a lot of fireworks displays in the coming weeks! Here is the information we have, so far, on where you can see fireworks in Quincy, Hannibal, and the surrounding area.
Local baseball returns to the area on May 28, when the Quincy Gems travel to Hannibal for a game against the Cavemen at Clemens Field. The Gems home opener at Q.U. Stadium is scheduled for Friday, May 30, and the second game of the season on June 1 will be the first Fireworks Night of 2014 at the ballpark.
The Hannibal Cavemen will host a special game on July 14 at Clemens Field. The Cavemen will play the U.S. Military All-Stars at 7:05. During this game, all veterans will be admitted free with their military IDs, and there will be special giveaways and fireworks following the game.
