Here’s some info from the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund website:
The Three Tree Point Fireworks celebration is supported entirely by donations from the communities of Three Tree Point, Seahurst, Normandy Park, Seola Beach, Arroyo Beach, Arbor Heights and others.
Our barge based, high-altitude fireworks show has gotten better every year thanks to countless people who have donated time and money.
In 2012, our goal is to keep the fireworks and community celebrations at the same great level that they have been at. This will be the fifth year we are seeking corporate sponsors for our event.
We raise funds from May–June to ensure we have time to get all the permits, insurance and the best vendors.
Originally started by the Miller family as a gift to The Three Tree Point Community, the fireworks tradition was continued by neighbors when the Millers moved away.
In addition to the fireworks, the neighborhood traditions of a community pancake breakfast, kids games, flag raising with awards, bike parade and more have been ushering in summer at our great community. What a great place to live!
