Fireworks to illuminate night sky after Oct. 29 Sandy High football game
While extremely dry conditions and wildfire concerns canceled Sandy's fireworks show this Fourth of July, the city plans to put the planned display of pyrotechnics to use after the last Sandy High Pioneer's last football game of the season on Friday, Oct. 29.
Last year, concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the event, so there was a lot of disappointment when when the show had to be postponed this July.
As they've done for years, Clackamas County Bank will sponsor the event, helping the city of Sandy foot the bill for the colorful, celebratory display over Sandy High School.
"One of our core values (at Clackamas County Bank) is to support and give back to the communities we serve," explained CCB President Cathy Stuchlik back in June. "We're happy to support an event that brings everyone in the community and surrounding areas together."
The fireworks will be set off following the football game and the city is working with the Oregon Trail School District to coordinate parking and make sure all goes off without a hitch.
"I think after the almost two years of disruption from the pandemic and not being able to have community-wide events for much of that time, the (Sandy City) Council and the city feel it's important to have a community celebration," said Sandy City Manager Jordan Wheeler. "I think these community events, especially those outside are safe for us to put on."
