Lakewood Country Club manager Ray DeTullio seemed almost annoyed by the question.

But since the city nearly canceled its fireworks show at Fair Park, which has been rescheduled for Monday July 5, neighbors have been asking us whether the Lakewood fireworks are still on.

DeTullio answered me with questions: “How many years have we been here? How many years have we had fireworks? How many times have we canceled them?”

The club has been there 98 years. DeTullio has worked there for 10 years, and they’ve never canceled the July 4 fireworks in that time. This year is no exception.

The show is a go for Sunday, July 4.
