PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) _ While some cities around the country are canceling or reducing their Fourth of July fireworks displays, the show will go on in Pittsburg.

After the city eliminated $17,000 it usually donated for the show, citizens began a campaign to raise the nearly $30,000 needed to put on the show. A $15,000 donation from Bell Credit Union put the campaign over the top.

The fireworks will go on at 10 p.m. Saturday at Lincoln Park.

Pittsburg resident Brandon Belew, who helped organize the fund
raising, said $20,000 of the money will go to this year's show, with the rest held over for next year.
