If you are looking for a fun, free evening with the kids, or if you just like fireworks, come out to the cemetery at 7:00 on Saturday night, May 24. You will get a close-up look at our new Harley Hearse and see the horse-drawn carriage from hoof-n-harness out of Jasper County. The evening is a guaranteed couple of hours of fun and relaxation. There will be hayrides and maybe a surprise or two.
Calumet Park Cemetery is located at the corner of Taft and 73rd in Merrillville. To go to the fireworks show, drive west past the main entrance to the cemetery for about a quarter mile and turn right into the cemetery. You will be directed as to where to park. This event will not disturb any graves spaces and is done as a way to honor all veterans who have given so much for this nation. Think of the verse: and the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night, that our flag was still there. The Star Spangled Banner waves because of the dedication of our country’s men and women in uniform. And we thank each and every one who ever donned the uniform, or stayed behind and sacrificed so much for so many.
