Elver Park fireworks canceled

City of Madison officials have decided to put the kibosh on the Elver Park fireworks, a Fourth of July staple for nearly 30 years, due to lack of funding.

According to a report in The Capital Times, the decision was made by the mayor’s office, city parks, police, and elected officials.

The event had struggled to find corporate sponsors over the years, costs were running high, and crowds were diminishing.
