LIGHTING UP THE NIGHT ON A CLAY COUNTY PATRIOT’S FARM

Each year we celebrate our independence with spectacular fireworks displays and family gatherings. For the past 4 1/2 decades, one of our more prominent celebrations has taken place in Clay County at Worlds of Fun.

Here is a little-known fact that I hope will better connect you to Independence Day: the area where Worlds of Fun shoots off fireworks was the farmland of one of our Clay County Revolutionary War veterans, James Crowley.
