REND LAKE - An annual Independence Day fireworks display at Rend Lake will not be happening for a second year in a row.

In 2019, the Benton / West City Chamber of Commerce announced they would no longer be holding the fireworks display due to a variety of reasons, including finances and lack of volunteers.

The only way the fireworks display would continue is if a new organizer or organization commits to running the annual event.

For several years, the display was the largest in the area. If you are interested in taking over the event, you can contact the Chamber of Commerce at (618) 438-2121.
