BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Sun says it has made a donation that will allow the annual Inner Harbor fireworks display to go on New Year’s Eve.

Last month, officials with Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts said they didn’t have the funds to produce the annual Inner Harbor fireworks display due to a lack of donations.

The Sun says is will serve as presenting sponsor for the event. Judith Berman, the Baltimore Sun Media Group’s senior vice president of marketing, says the event will lead into the newspaper’s 175th year of publishing.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake praised the city’s businesses for saving the fireworks display. Downtown hotels and companies joined The Sun as sponsors.

    Great, Now with the fireworks, we can have unruly gangs of black thugs to enjoy again along with an assortment of stabings & shootings.

    The article should have read, “Mayor Rawlings-Blake praised the local business for bailing her out of the mess she made of City funds with the Grand Prix fiasco.”

    I’m sorry, I had a great time and my kids loved the show, but I hardly think it was worth the time, money and MAJOR inconvenience to the general citizenry. Not to mention that we lost money…a lot of money. I hope we don’t have to go through it again. Once was enough.
