“We say 9 o’clock. But when it gets dark, we’re gon’, we’re gon’ crank this thing up. I would invite everybody to come join us. And view the fireworks on Sunday night,” said Mayor Wayne Labbe.

And although thousands of people usually attend the fireworks shows in Valley Grande — Selma — and Orrville. They also still go out — and get fireworks of their own.

“You have to take the mindset that no firework is safe. Keep water nearby, if you’re in a dry area or what have you. They’re fun. But they can be dangerous at the same time,” said Crum.

The Orrville Fireworks Show is Monday — July 4th at 8 pm — at the Orrville Community Center.
