The annual fireworks show will go on at dusk Thursday, July 3, in Pequot Lakes, thanks to donations from area organizations and residents.

The Babinski Foundation donated $1,200, and the Pequot Lakes-Breezy Point Lions Club donated $500, in addition to many people who donated from $10 to $200 each.

"Fireworks are a go thanks to the generous donation from the Babinski Foundation and the Pequot Lakes-Breezy Point Lions Club," said Jenna Crawford, the chamber's Pequot Lakes area director. "We are still taking donations to help fund this year and next year's fireworks."

Stars & Stripes Days still needs community support, Crawford said. Send donations to the Chamber at P.O. Box 208, Pequot Lakes, MN 56472.

"We want to thank all of the member businesses and community residents who have sponsored and donated to these events over the past," Crawford said. "We are very fortunate to be able to bring people into our area to show off our wonderful community and to help keep our business community strong."
