No Fireworks In Aledo This Year

A tradition that has lasted over 60 years is coming to an end as Aledo will not have a fireworks display this year on the 4th of July.  Aledo Volunteer Fire Department Chief Dennis Litwiler said the expense was just getting to be too much.

Litwiler added that the crowds have also been dwindling.

Litwiler did not rule out that the fireworks could return someday if the funding is there.
