During the Summer of 2017 a public-private collaboration of business owners, Lewes citizens, and representatives of the City of Lewes decided to form an organization to bring official fireworks back to the city of Lewes. We believe that safe and legal fireworks along our beach is the perfect ending to the Lewes' Old Fashioned Fourth of July festivities, which include games on Second Street, a boat parade on the canal, and the Lewes Doo Dah Parade. Fireworks on the beach are a perfect way to end this family-friendly day. Go Fourth! was formed to bring this to fruition.
Go Fourth! is jointly managed by the Go Fourth! committee of volunteers, the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Lewes. The Go Fourth! While we have had great cooperation, assistance, and participation from the City of Lewes, along with support from Mayor Ted Becker, the fireworks are not funded by the City of Lewes. lAl funding is from donations from local individuals, businesses, and organizations. Fund donations are managed in cooperation with the committee by the Greater Lewes Foundation 501(c)3, and thus, donations are tax-deductible.
We did it Lewes! Thanks to each and every person who helped make our fireworks a reality! This is now officially an annual tradition! See you on July 4, 2019,
Local builder Russ Palmer served as the first Go Fourth! honorary chair, to raise the minimum $45,000 needed for the 2018 event. Members of the fundraising committee include Terri Colegrove, Paul Evalds, and Rich Garrett. Please visit the Sponsorship page for more information or to make a donation for 2019. All donations, large and small, are needed to make our fireworks fly on July 4th 2019!
