Financing Fireworks

A last minute fundraising drive in Meridian Township will get their display by Night Magic, Inc. off the ground.

In that case, it's costing $17,000 for a 20 minute show. If you're doing the math, yes, that's about $850 a minute. There are ways to do it on the cheap.

At the Ingham County fairgrounds, for example, Mason's fire department does the show themselves. It costs them about $7,000 thousand dollars for about 30 minutes. That money is also donated.

Lansing's show is an exception to the rule. $15,000 is set aside in the city's budget.
