TWIN FALLS -- Organizers of a Fourth of July fireworks show in Twin Falls say this year's show could fizzle if they don't get about another $15,000 in donations to put on the annual event.
Peggy Kidd tells The Times-News that the group has about $14,600 in donations, pledges and reserve funds but needs to hit at least $30,000 to put on the display that costs about $1,000 per minute.
The group faced the same problem last year but reached its $35,000 goal a week before the holiday.
Kidd says part of the problem is many people still believe Twin Falls pays for the whole fireworks display. City spokesman Josh Palmer says the city contributes about $8,000 in money from donations and permit fees from fireworks stands.
