Fireworks for Liberation Day could be nixed

Guam - It may be an empty sky at the Liberation Day festival this year. The planned fireworks display could be a no-go, according to Executive Director for the Mayors Council of Guam Angel Sablan. The fireworks and the equipment used to blast them off burst prematurely into flames during a fire at Q's Ranch last month.

Sablan says the company that provided the explosives fireworks extravaganza based in Pennsylvania and Maryland may not be able to ship replacement fireworks in time for the annual event. He says the company will let the Council know by the 15th if they can make the delivery to Guam. The display comes at a cost of $30,000.

Sablan says they have already put down a 50% deposit, but will get the money back if they can't get the fireworks in time for Liberation Day. Sablan says just in case they are considering other options such as a laser light show or bringing in a big-name band from off-island.
