PAULDING – CoRP (Community Revitalizing Paulding) has reached and exceeded their $8,000 goal to fund the fireworks display at the John Paulding Summer Blast on Friday, July 17. With the help of many area businesses and community members the show will go on. CoRP thanks everyone who graciously donated in such a difficult time. Businesses and families are struggling, but still came together to ensure the bicentennial will be celebrated with a bang.

A special thank you to Cooper Farms for fronting half the bill as the time clock ran low. All remaining funds will roll over to help cover the cost of next year’s firework display.

Bring the family to downtown Paulding and enjoy the John Paulding Summer Blast on Friday, July 17.

Food vendors will be ready to serve at 4 p.m. and the parade starts at 6:30 p.m.; followed by Kiwanis Kids Zone, touch-a-truck, live music, beer, the Paulding Ace Hardware cornhole tournament, and food vendors.

Stick around for the fireworks display set to start around 10 p.m.

Paulding County is a great place to live with such a strong, loving, and caring community.

Time and time again the people of Paulding County, and businesses, extend a helping hand to make sure the community never misses out on an opportunity or a chance to celebrate one another. We don’t say it often enough, thank you.
