Garrett Giles: Fireworks cancellation bad for business

Garrett Giles

Having read the news article about the Frisco Town Council’s decision to cancel the July Fourth fireworks this year, my question for the council is: Do they fully understand what they have done? They have ruined hundreds of people’s plans, including mine, for that evening. That said, they have made the decision not because of dangerous conditions for the fireworks but rather because of the people. Do they not understand the amount of people that the event would bring – plus thousands of dollars not only to Frisco businesses, but also the businesses in the rest of the county.

As a food-service worker, I know having holiday business is imperative to the survival of the restaurant; the Frisco town council just took that away. If it is at all possible, the town council should reconsider because of this problem. If not for the people problem, then for the people who have/had plans to watch the fireworks and now must make new plans just one week before. That is the ridiculous part of the decision. People have had plans to watch these fireworks for weeks if not months, and now, one week before the launch date, Frisco kills the deal. I have friends coming out from Kansas City, and this was going to be a huge highlight for them, but because of the misjudgment on the Frisco Town Council’s part, that is now ruined. Thanks a lot!
