As of 2015, SHEDCO will no longer be sponsoring the St. Helens fireworks display. The Community Foundation and 13 Nights will be taking over from 2015 forward. We appreciate everyone who helped make the fireworks a success in the past and we look forward to seeing the wonderful work of the Community Foundation.
