The 12 Annual Fireworks Preview Show will be tonight, June 20, at the Hamilton High School parking lot.

The sky bombs will be presented by the folks at Cow Palace Fireworks in advance of their July 4th sales and as a benefit for the Hamilton High School speech, debate and drama team.

The start time is about 9:45 p.m. and admission is free. Bring lawn chairs or a blanket.

During the show, if you make a contribution to the speech and debate team, you'll get a ticket for drawings of door prizes throughout the evening. The students will be circulating through the crowd with donation buckets.

During the fireworks sales season, Cow Palace (located at the Albertson's parking lot in Hamilton and near Super One Foods in Stevensville) will donate a $1 out of each $10 purchase to the Hamilton High team.

In case of bad weather, the show will be held Sunday evening, June 22, at the same place and same time.

By the way, fireworks sales in Montana start June 24.
