Donations


New in 2002, we constructed a donation box where donations for local charities could be accepted. This attracted more than $62,000.00 throughout 8 seasons! The distribution of these donations is shown below.

Note that donations have gone down the past few seasons, mainly due to poor weather conditions and very expensive paid-duty police officers that we hired for traffic control. The town and police department would not financially assist with this expense. For 2 seasons, the only way to keep this show running was to hire these officers and they are the ONLY expense paid out from collected donations...we had no choice!

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!
