Turlock Will Have a Fourth of July Celebration, Not at CSUS

The Stanislaus County Fair Board voted to donate the fairgrounds for a fireworks show since the CSUS Fantastic Fourth Celebration has been cancelled.

After the bad news from university spokesperson Kristin Olsen that the $50,000 fireworks show would be cancelled due to budget constraints, Turlock Mayor John Lazar had said that Turlock will try to have something to continue the 20 plus year tradition.


The only alternative in the area was going to be the Stanislaus County Woodward Fireworks Celebration. A county VIP private beach party was proposed to benefit regional politicians, leaders, and business owners who may have sponsored the event. The fireworks show at Woodward will continue but the sponsor party has been called off.


The Turlock Chamber of Commerce decided to lead an effort to ensure that the Turlock community would have a community fireworks show.


After only about 5 days, a reported $22,000 in committed sponsorships were collected before even going to the Stanislaus County Fair Board.


Despite being so close to the focal use of the fairgrounds (the Stanislaus County Fair beginning on July 31st), the board agreed that this event would be good for the community and that they could pull it off.


The Fourth of July event has a budget of $35,000 for the fireworks, a kids area, live music, a sound system, lighting, labor, and marketing.


The partnership between the Turlock Chamber of Commerce and the Stanislaus County Fair is basically a rental agreement where the Chamber will be responsible for all costs while the Fair doesn’t charge for the use of the fairgrounds.


Committed sponsorships and additional sponsorships still need to be collected while all the details will start coming together and announced to the public. TurlockCityNews.com will let you know about all the updated details as soon as we get them.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
