RANDOLPH – Fireworks are returning to Randolph this 4th of July weekend.
Peaches and Cream, a local business in the Cattaraugus County Town, is partnering with others in the community to host the display.
Nikole Lockwood, a manager at the shop, tells us the community previously came together every year for the holiday, and she is thrilled to be able to make that happen again.
“Once COVID hit they temporarily disappeared,” explains Lockwood. “We wanted to bring back the fireworks to bring the community together.”
She says it took a bit of planning, and financial contributions to make the display happen.
“We are [Peaches and Cream] donating to some of it, we also had a lot of sponsors around town such as the Adams family letting us use their field, the Town of Randolph, the Inkleys, the Yuhle family, and several businesses and local communities,” furthered Lockwood.
Those at the popular stop for fresh produce and ice cream alike say, it is easier than ever to attend the July 3rd show at Weeden Park.
“We’re planning on doing fireworks on July 3rd at 10pm, we’re super excited about that because you will be able to see the things we have in this small town,” furthered manager Loganne Bushey. “You can sit right at Weeden Park and see them from Adam’s field. It will be really nice and something to bring people together.”
This is not the first time the business has given back to the community, as employee Ryder Smith explains, working hard and giving back is a priority for his team.
“I’ve always had a good work ethic, to help people and to see a smile on peoples faces really brings a smile to my face,” says Ryder “That’s what brings me here everyday.”
Although closed during the firework display, Peaches and Cream will be open throughout the day leading up to the event. Those interested in coming early can treat themselves to ice cream through 9 p.m.
Cold tasty treats are not the only item that they offer, as you can stock up on many fruits, vegetables, and flowers as well.
