Thousands of people in Redmond enjoy the local fireworks display on the fourth of July, but this year the show may not go on. The Redmond Chamber says they are a few days away from their deadline to raise enough money for the show, but only are about halfway to the goal. Chamber Spokesman Eric Sande says its a very popular event: “The show has been going on for many, many years and Eagle Crest Rresort was the sponsor. With the economy a couple of years ago, they had to drop that sponsorship, so it just fell to the community if they wanted to make that happen. If they wanted to do fireworks at the fairgrounds, they needed to fund it. It’s not really the Chamber's event it’s the community's event." Yesterday a local business stepped up with a $2500 donation; that came from High Desert Paving and Aggregate.  The Chamber already had $1000, so this pledge brings them to $3500, about half-way to the goal with just 8 days left to raise the money.
