Monkey Island Fireworks Fundraising Underway
With the formal presentation of a $2,000 donation from the Grand River Dam Authority, the Monkey Island Fireworks Committee kicked off the 2019 fundraising drive in preparation of the Island’s biggest Independence Day Fireworks Celebration yet.
The 2019 Monkey Island Fireworks display will be Saturday, July 6 at Shangri-La Resort Hotel. The fireworks will be visible from both land and water. They will be shot from a staging area in the parking lot of the public boat ramp between Shangri-La Chateaus and Shangri-La’s Champions 2 & 3 golf holes.
In addition to the fireworks display, there will be music, a vintage aircraft air show, and lots of fun activities for kids. There is no charge to attend the event, but committee remembers remind everyone that generous contributions to the Monkey Island Fireworks is what enables them to put on a great show for all!
Parking will be at Shangri-La Hotel, Eddy’s Lakeside Bar, and Shangri-La Marina. If you’re not watching by boat, the “Grand Lawn” in front of Shangri-La Hotel should be a great spot. Bring a lawn chair and join the fun.
Monkey Island Fireworks Committee members include Jon Davidson, Peggy Howard, Doug Smith and Mike Williams.
As always, your donations make this show happen, so please give generously.
Checks should be made payable to the Monkey Island Fireworks Committee and mailed to 30090 South Highway 125, Monkey Island, OK 74331.
