Carlisle Mayor Kirk Wilson today sent out a reminder that Stars Burst Over Carlisle 2011 fireworks show will be held Saturday beginning at 9:30 p.m. at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.

"First and foremost, I want to express my appreciation to each and every one of our sponsors," said Wilson. "Contributions ranged from $50 to $5,000."

The mayor said that in addition to the usual array of aerial "bombs bursting in air," this year's show will again include the addition of "close proximity fireworks." The close firing makes them much more entertaining for the audience while using only a fraction of the explosives of conventional fireworks.

Wilson said this part of the show will only be visible from the Carlisle Fairgrounds. As a result there will be some additional restricted parking areas to allow spectators to view the show. Carlisle Special Fire Police will direct traffic.

Wilson's press release said sponsors include Members 1st Federal Credit Union and the Carlisle Regional Medical Center. Other sponsors are Carlisle Events, Lamar Advertising, VFW Post 477 of Carlisle, Benecon, Comcast, Direct Energy, Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellot, Hoffman Roth Funeral Home, Land O Lakes, R.S. Mowery and Sons, Orrstown Bank, Tree of Life Church, Haines Stackfield American Legion and the Lewis Puller, Jr., Chapter of the Marine Corps League.

"Without the financial assistance provided by these donations, there would be no summertime community fireworks display," Wilson said. "Thank you to each and every one."
