    Red, White, & Boom Fireworks Rescheduled for Labor Day

    The Red, White & Boom! fireworks have been rescheduled for Labor Day, Monday, September 1,2014, starting promptly at 8:30 p.m. The fireworks will be shot from a barge in the Mississippi River between Davenport and Rock Island.

    Family activities will start at 6:00 p.m. in Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport and Schwiebert Riverfront Park in Rock Island. Both riverfronts will feature additional publicly accessible viewing areas.

    The festival’s original date of July 3 was cancelled due to flooding of the Mississippi River. “We’re thrilled to give the Quad Cities another opportunity to enjoy the largest fireworks show in the region,” said Ken Croken, Chairman, Red, White & Boom Committee. “The Red, White & Boom! Committee has been hard at work preparing for this, and we’re excited to make Labor Day even more special for the community this year.”

    Red, White & Boom! is generously hosted by Genesis Health System and Riverboat Development Authority, and presented by the Downtown Davenport Partnership, a division of the Quad Cities Chamber, and Rock Island Parks & Recreation.

    Red, White, and Boom Cancelled Due to High River Levels

    The Red, White & Boom! committee announced today that the 2014 Red, White & Boom, scheduled for Thursday, July 3, has been cancelled.

    “One of the spectacular things about Red, White & Boom! is our ability to put on a top-notch fireworks show over the Mississippi River,” says Kyle Carter, Executive Director, Downtown Davenport Partnership. “In this case however, due to flooding, we’re not able to produce a quality show that would meet the expectations of our community.”

    Although preliminary approval was given to shoot the fireworks from Centennial Bridge, the organization was later notified by its fireworks vendor that it could not safely set up the show from the bridge due to its size and caliber.

    “Safety, flooding, and quality were our primary concerns in making this decision,” said Carter. “The committee will be considering our future options.”
