GRAND FORKS — No expense will be spared by the Greater Grand Forks Sertoma Club, as $18,000 worth of fireworks are expected to light up the sky this Sunday, July 4.

The show is part of the club's larger " 4th of July Festival ," which is back at full force this year, after only having the fireworks show in 2020.

The festival will take place on the softball fields near South Middle School, and it will feature things like parades, a kissing booth and 15 food vendors.

Kay Derry, the secretary of the Sertoma Club, said to have every event tied to the celebration come back in just one year is incredible to see.


"We're super excited about it, so I think everyone's out and about, and getting ready to see people, and celebrating what we can get back again," she said.

The festival is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. Sunday with the kids' parade, and will also feature performances from the Grand Forks City Band and local music groups.

It's slated to end with the fireworks show, which starts at 10:30 p.m.
