Our friends to the east are having a a big festival tonight. The City of Desoto has rescheduled their July 4th fireworks display for this evening. Rain canceled the event in July. Organizers of the event have decided to call it “A Mid-Summer Night” festival.
The festival takes place in Riverfront Park in Desoto. Gates for the festival will open at 6:00 PM with the fireworks display scheduled to start at 9:30PM. The festival will feature food, music, craft booths, games for the kiddies and of course the fireworks display.
Because of the set up for the fireworks display, the Desoto boat ramp on the Kansas River will be closed all day today. Organizers will also be pleased because no rain is in the forecast for tonight.
