Businesses Agree to Sponsor Future July 4 Celebrations

Fireworks at McIntire Park
Fireworks explode over the tree line between CHS and McIntire Park.

Gray Television and StellarOne have agreed to sponsor a local Independence Day event for the next two years, The Daily Progress reports. Gray Television—owner of ABC-16, CBS-19, and Fox-27—will organize and sponsor the event, while the bank will pay for the fireworks. It’s not clear from the coverage right now, but I gather that StellarOne has signed up for just a two-year hitch, but that Gray intends to continue overseeing the event indefinitely. If that’s true, this will end the limbo that the celebration has occupied for since the Jaycees stopped putting on the event, as they had for some years.
