Fireworks are kicking off Fourth of July festivities around the country this week, and with one of the “best shows in the state” starting this year’s extended Fourth of July weekend with a bang, many residents of West Central Indiana are off to a good start. On Saturday evening, July 1, the town of Bainbridge set its sights on gaining a personal-best after raising its total purchase from local business Mortonville Fireworks to $3,000 in June, an amount supplemented by several fundraisers and local campaigns aimed at expanding last year’s tone-setting display. Hundreds of visitors took to the streets, subdivisions, parks and schools Saturday to observe the ongoing efforts put forth by Bainbridge officials.
