Fireworks Parking to Benefit GaCo Robotics

Last Updated on Jun 28, 2016 at 2:18pm | Public Information Office

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 1629, the Garrett Coalition (GaCo) will be providing parking to view the “Fire on the Mountains Fireworks” display on July 4 at two locations in the McHenry area.  GaCo will provide parking across Route 219 from Smiley’s, adjacent to the Garrett County Fairgrounds, as in previous years. The second site will be at the Fairgrounds parking lot on the Mosser Road entrance.
Gates will open at 3:00 PM at the Fairgrounds using the Mosser Road entrance, and the location across Route 219 from Smiley’s Fun Zone, adjacent to the Fairgrounds, will open at 6:00 PM. Parking will be $5.00 per vehicle at both locations.
Prior to the start of the fireworks display, GaCo will be selling its old-fashioned fresh squeezed lemonade, demonstrating its FRC robot used for competition last season, launching solid fuel model rockets, and will have some of its LEGO interactive models on hand at both locations. In addition, the team will be displaying its LEGO “Lemonade” Train at the lemonade stand on the Fairgrounds parking lot.
GaCo Robotics is a school sponsored extracurricular activity of the Garrett County Public Schools and wishes to thank Smiley’s Fun Zone and the Garrett County Fair Board for partnering with the team for this fundraising activity. The team values its many partners and sponsors as a method for establishing its vision of “Every child in and about Garrett County being STEM Ready.” For more information, please call the Garrett County Public Schools at 301-334-8926 during regular business hours.
