VALLEJO (KCBS)— A fireworks show remains on hold in Vallejo where merchants and residents are trying to raise money for the annual 4th of July display, but they’re closing in on the $15,000 goal.
What’s a 4th of July without a fireworks show? The skies did not light up in Vallejo in 2009. Since then Victory Stores owner Raymond Prather and barbeque restaurant owner of Gracie’s, Ken Ingersoll, have both gone to bat for the community.
“We’ve been raising the money for the fireworks for the last five years. So we’re really excited about that,” Prather said.
