SUGARHOUSE (News4Utah)- The beloved Sugar House Park 4th of July fireworks show has seen its grand finale.
The annual event has been privately funded and privately organized since 2010, but this year the organizer has chosen not to put on the event.
“As the event grows in popularity, more requirements and permits are necessary for it to be safe and successful. Those additional measures require more funds, time, and effort to coordinate each year,” Chad Anderson, president of the Sugar House Park Authority board of trustees said.
This year, no individual or group has come forward and the time required to produce the event has passed, Anderson said.
“Without a private organizer and private funds, the July 4 th fireworks show for 2018 will not take place,” he added.
