The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce is planning an evening of music at Jackson County's Public Library/old courthouse in Sylva on Nov. 1 to benefit the return of fireworks to Sylva on July 4, 2015.

The Fall Fireworks Fundraiser will be held in the Community Room from 5 to 9 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 1 and feature performances by two of the region’s hottest bands; Soldier’s Heart and the 96.5 House Band.

The band Soldier’s Heart will bring its special blend of Americana music to Sylva’s Bridge Park from 5-6:45 p.m. The 96.5 House Band will perform classic rock hits from 7-8:45 p.m. 

The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce is requesting at least a $5 donation for admission to the concert, with proceeds to help support financing fireworks in Sylva on July 4, 2015.

“We’re excited to not only bring these two amazing bands to Sylva for a fun night of music, but we’re also extremely pleased to be working diligently on bringing fireworks back to the downtown Sylva area next summer,” said Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Julie Spiro. 

Citizens and businesses can make donations for fireworks anytime at the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center in Sylva. Volunteer, vendor and sponsorship opportunities are also available.
