Excelsior residents have something to look forward to this Fourth of July, a community-wide fireworks display hosted by The Elms Hotel & Spa.
The fireworks will launch from Siloam Mountain Park on Saturday, July 4 at dusk, which is typically between 9 and 10 p.m. Viewing is best from downtown Excelsior Springs facing east. The Elms encourages everyone to practice proper social distancing while enjoying the fireworks.
“The past few months have been challenging times, it is important to The Elms and the hotel’s owner that we support and give back to the Excelsior Springs community,” said Elms General Manager John Mormino.
The hotel partnered with local businesses to fund the event. Local partners include Ross Mechanical Inc., Payne Jailhouse Bed & Breakfast, Dubious Claims Brewing Company, Willow Spring Mercantile and Brian Yarbrough.
“As we have done in the past, we will continue to do what we can to support our community, employees, guests and visitors,” Mormino said. “We hope this year’s fireworks celebration is the resurgence of an old tradition of Fourth of July celebrations in Excelsior Springs.”
