    I just called Sprindale City and they said there is not a fireworks show on New Years Eve.

    The only things available in St George are eating, going to church and staying home talking about babies and grandbabies. Stupid mayor and council made everything else in this Footloose town illegal.

    you can all go see live music at Jazzy’s rock and roll grill located on Bluff St. they have beer and great music, I do believe they just got a liquor liscence as well so you could enjoy a stiffer drink to ring in the New Year. 😉
