Over the years, Shiloh has developed a reputation for producing the biggest and best fireworks show in the region.

People would drive for hundreds of miles to see the show. Each year, the crowds grew bigger.

That popularity proved to be the downfall of the show. The crowds grew too big for the facilities at Shiloh.

There will be no public fireworks show on July 3 at Shiloh this year. There will be a small private celebration with fireworks and music on July 4 at Shiloh for attendees of their annual summer conference.

For 30 years, the Shiloh church has hosted an annual celebration of America’s Independence Day that has become a large attraction in the community.

This success led to a growth in attendance that exceeded the capacity of what the Shiloh church facilities could handle.

In light of this, it was announced that last year was the farewell presentation.

Craig Haworth, Shiloh pastor, said: “We know the community has enjoyed this show and will miss it. It has been an honor for the Shiloh church to host such a lasting and impactful event, and we are continuing to look for new ways to participate in future events and activities that will be a blessing to our community.”
