Hamilton High Fireworks Preview Was A Blast

The Hamilton High School Speech and Debate team earned some money and a parking lot full of people got a nice fireworks show Friday night.

The skies were threatening up until sunset, then it cleared and about 10pm, the Boshae family started lighting the displays.

Steve Boshae started the preview display 10 years ago to publicize his sales at Cow Palace Fireworks stands in Hamilton and Stevensville, but also to raise money for a growing speech and debate team at Hamilton High School.

The students raised money at the display by selling concessions and a couple of raffles, where tickets were sold throughout the crowd. After the show, the sales at the Cow Palace stands earn a dollar for the team from every $10 purchase.

Jim Shea has been the announcer for the display each year, noting the product names and numbers before and after they blast into the sky. He also said that one of the displays Friday was dedicated to the Hamilton Volunteer Fire Department, who always stand by at the display for any grass fires started by an errant firework.

And, a reminder, the Hamilton public fireworks display will be happening at dusk July 4th and money is still needed to help cover the expense. Drop your donation at City Hall on South 2nd Street.
