2018 Kevin Sonnycalb Memorial Fireworks Festival
The Xenia Rotary Club will present the fourth annual Kevin Sonnycalb Memorial Fireworks Festival on Friday, July 6, 2018 at Shawnee Park in Xenia, Ohio. “My family and I are delighted that we can once again give this gift to the Xenia community,” said Susie Sonnycalb. Sarah Sinclair-Amend, President of Xenia Rotary Club and creator/coordinator of the event for the Rotary Club/City of Xenia for her fourth and final year, states “We are very proud that Xenia Rotary, with the help of Greene Memorial Hospital and the City of Xenia, can honor our past Rotarian and provide annual tradition for the families of Xenia and the surrounding communities.”
The Fireworks Festival is named in honor of long-time Rotarian Kevin Sonnycalb, a Xenia businessman and civic leader. The free festival will follow a timeline similar to the previous years’ events, including John E and Betty Jo Meyers Family Foundation Bounce House Zone, Children's Bike Parade, Child and Adult Fishing Derbies, Mike Hemmelgarn’s Puppet Show, Chalk Art Contest, live music (Blue Moon Soup), and end with a spectacular fireworks display by Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks.
Xenia City Manager Brent Merriman stated, “The Kevin Sonnycalb Memorial Fireworks festival is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the most well-attended festivals in Xenia. As it goes into its fourth season, the City of Xenia is pleased to provide essential police, fire and public service department assistance to ensure our citizens have a safe and enjoyable experience. We thank the Rotary Club of Xenia, the Sonnycalb family and the other sponsors who work hard each year to collaborate on producing such an impressive event.”
