Donations


Thank you for all your support as more than $88,000 has been passed along to more than a dozen local charities since 2002. 100% of collections go to charity, with the exception of 2007/2008 when expensive paid-duty police officers were hired to control traffic (this was the only way to keep the shows running, and were the only expenses paid out from collected donations).

For those who enjoy the show from across the world and feel they'd like to donate for charity, we now accept donations online.  Thank you!
