Better late than never.
At least that’s the thinking among organizers of De Soto’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display, which was rained out.
So on Saturday, they’re planning A Mid-Summer Night festival, which will feature fireworks, music, food and crafts booths, and games for children.
Gates for the festival will open at 6 p.m. at Riverfest Park in De Soto. Fireworks are slated to begin at 9:30 p.m.
Because of the fireworks display and set-up, the De Soto boat ramp on the Kansas River will be closed all day Saturday.
