The annual East Syracuse fireworks have been a summer tradition for thousands of families, since 1976. They are viewed by many, as the best fireworks show in the Central New York Region, which is quite a compliment for a small village. It is the only event East Syracuse holds, that brings in people from all over the county. It is beneficial to local businesses, who reap the benefits of having so many new customers, if only for that day.
The cancellation of these fireworks, would devastate so many people, and put an end to an almost 40 year tradition. Is that really worth saving a few bucks??
