Pima Independence Day fireworks show to be biggest in Graham County

By Jon Johnson


PIMA – With everything going on in the world right now, who couldn’t use an uplifting fireworks show on July 4?

Well, the town of Pima has got you covered and, in conjunction with Colvin Farms and the Eden Community, will produce the largest fireworks show in Graham County this year.

The show will be held at the Vard Lines Memorial Rodeo Arena/Pima Ball Fields off 1200 South and will start at approximately 8 p.m.

According to Pima Town Manager Sean Lewis, the “Mayor of Eden” Clint Colvin purchased the city of Glendale’s fireworks show after that city canceled it.

Lewis conferred with Colvin, and the pair decided to join to use all the fireworks for a show in Pima this year.

The town will also hold its annual pancake breakfast at Heritage Park between the Pima Library and Pima Fire Department on 200 West, starting at 6:30 a.m. For just $3 per person, everyone gets to enjoy an all-you-can-eat breakfast, which is a fundraiser for the Eastern Arizona Museum. Veterans and active military eat for free.
