Yet Another Mystery Solved!
We received a number of calls Monday morning from folk north and west of Evansville who wanted to know what the loud booms were Saturday evening - a rolling thunder type of sound coming from the north. Well, it was a private fireworks show. A family near Haubstadt out by the St James area with plenty of acreage and a lake put on a fireworks show every year for the Fourth of July for friends and neighbors. Since it was too dry on July 4 to set ‘em off, they decided to do it Saturday night. About 200 folks were there and if you heard the distant “thunder” it was their grand finale which went on a good 2 or 3 minutes. Thanks for all the calls!
