What a show!!! Thousands of lake area residents and visitors were treated to a spectacular fireworks show Friday night.

BLASST coordinator Tory Wolfe said it was the biggest and most expensive ever - $60,000. It is a tribute to our veterans and service men and women.

Friday's Buckeye Lake Area Civic Association's Boat Parade started off with VFW Post 1388 raising the flag at Lieb's Island while Howard Everitt played the National Anthem. Grand Marshall Jack Gorham was a hit with his many fans.
