Fireworks return to Beckley on Independence Day


 An announcement was made by the City of Beckley on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 regarding a fireworks display to celebrate the Fourth of July.  The release stated a press conference would be held on Thursday, May 7 and indicated that there will be a return of fireworks over the Independence Day weekend.  

Beckley Mayor Bill O’Brien canceled the fireworks display in 2014 due to budget constraints.   The mayor said at that time the city was in debt by around a million dollars, and canceling the fireworks saved Beckley around $10,000.
