Cameron County Fireworks blast off each July during Weekend in the Wilds. Fundraising for the event kicks off this week with a raffle. Smoker Logging has donated two dump truck loads (2 cords) of firewood to be raffled. The winner will be drawn during Shop Small Saturday, November 25. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at Sunnyside Boutique or the chamber office.
The fireworks are a signature event for the county. “People book hotel rooms, pack their camps and plan vacation around the event,” according to chamber executive director Tina Solak. The chamber phones have already begun to ring with people asking for the date which is Saturday, July 6.
