Those partners include us here at WyoRadio, Infinity Power & Controls, Kelly’s Convenience Centers, the Spicer Family Foundation, Sweetwater Speedway, and the City of Rock Springs.
The fireworks will be launched from the east side of the Sweetwater Events Complex property and visible from many locations throughout the city.
