The Wyandotte Nation hosted its annual Fireworks Display Thursday, July 2, at the Pow-Wow grounds.
An estimated 2,370 people gathered to witness the fireworks show, listen to great music from the Diversity Band, and enjoy food from various vendors. Youth also had the opportunity to play on inflatables leading up to the fireworks show.
Wyandotte Nation Chief Billy Friend addressed the crowd beforehand, thanking the community for supporting the Tribe’s various local businesses (SONIC Drive-In, Turtle Stop, Wyandotte Nation Casino) as the free fireworks event was a way for the Nation to show its thanks for that support.
Following Chief Friend, tribal citizen Abby Baldwin sang the National Anthem leading into the fireworks show.
