The Shabbona Fireworks are an established tradition in many of the families of DeKalb County. Many come from far and near to sit on the shores of Lake Shabbona to watch a 30 minutes dazzling display...
The Shabbona Fireworks were first established over 25 years ago with a 'seed' donation from Myrtie Houghtby. The Community Events Association (CEA) raised additional funds and hosted the first Fireworks.
The CEA continued as the key organizer until the Shabbona Fire Department assumed responsibilty. Both organizations did an outstanding job, but budget considerations made it necessary to establish the Shabbona Fireworks Association in 2009.
