The fireworks season is here and the first public display in the Riverbend will be tonight at Brighton's Schneider Park.  Starting at 4pm, there will be food, games and a bounce house at Schneider Park, under the water tower on the north end of town.  Brighton Village Clerk Billie Laubscher says there will be a local favorite on the menu - burgoo - good news if you missed the opportunity to pick some up at the recent Betsy Ann Homecoming.

Laubscher comments

The fireworks will get started around dusk.  Bethalto's annual display at St. Louis Regional Airport is scheduled for tomorrow night, June 30th, and then more will take place around July 4th.  The Alton/Godfrey Fireworks on the Mississippi near the Clark Bridge will be held on Wednesday, July 3.  The fireworks will continue on the Fourth with a display scheduled to take place in Jerseyville, and the season will wrap up on July 5th with displays planned in Godfrey and Grafton.
