Greetings Friends of the Kingston 4th of July Celebration,

If you've been following us, you know that we are struggling to bring in the donations we need to support the events on the 4th of July. Our entire event is funded by donations from local businesses, our local tribes, and individuals like yourself. Many businesses have stepped up to help with our funding needs and some, like the Point Casino have increased their donations which has been a big help. Many of you have also donated to the cause and we really appreciate it.

But, as we have mentioned in previous posts, we are dealing with a lower reserve fund, and much higher costs. Our fireworks show 5 years ago cost us about $35-40K. Today those cost are closer to $60K when you factor in the barge costs, permit costs and of course the cost of the fireworks themselves.

We currently have about half what we need, and we are running out of time. I am writing this post to ask that you dig deep if you can and let's try to make this show happen. We will be looking at incoming donations over the next week and will make a go/no-go decision at the end of next week.

We do not want to cancel the fireworks show, but if we cannot afford it, we will have to do so. Please share this message around with everyone you can think of. We really are desperate to raise more money so we can have the great 4th of July in Kingston we've all come to know and love.

Thank you for your support.
Tony Clark
Chairman - Kingston 4th of July Celebration


We are a volunteer organization with people from many backgrounds. They give their time, during the course of the year and on the 4th of July, to plan and organize the events that you come to Kingston to experience every year. Make a donation or be a sponsor of an annual event and let everyone know you support us.

Parade Registration

We need people. There are lots of ways to volunteer your time. We need people prior to the 4th to help us plan and organize events as well as help raise money. We also need people to help on the 4th, even for just a couple hours, helping at the parade or at Tiny Town. If you have the time we would love to hear from you. Contact us!

Look for buttons and t-shirts available for sale around town. What a great way to get the message out to everyone about this great event that’s about to happen in town! This is a quick and easy way to make a small donation for our event. Every little bit helps!
