Dazzling Display

The Rock Springs Fireworks show was amazing. What made it even more special was how the community united and paid for dazzling display of pyrotechnics for the Fourth of July celebration this year after the Rock Springs City Council decided not to fund the fireworks display due to budget shortfall concerns.
