The 3rd annual fireworks display was held July 5, 2014, at Fishtrap Lake. The event is held each year to promote water safety. Rangers worked in cooperation with the Millard Fire and Rescue Department to offer water and fire safety activities for the kids. Activities taught include: how to properly rescue a drowning victim; wear a life vest; hypothermia; safety equipment required on vessels; and proper use of equipment. The event ended with a 20-minute fireworks display. It’s estimated that over 4,000 people were in attendance.
