No Fireworks at Silver Springs Park on the 4th of July

Every since I can remember, there was Fireworks and a concert at Silver Springs Park every year on the 4th of July.

This year in 2014  thanks to Governor Rick Scott letting Palace Entertainment out of their contact early (which was supposed to run until 2029) and putting Silver Springs Park under the control of the Florida Park Service there was no Fireworks at Silver Springs Park on the 4th of July and no concert.

Since the State of Florida took over Silver Springs park, we have suffered a considerable downgrade in services and entertainment. They eliminated the small zoo, the animal shows, rides like the safari ride, boat rides, kids attractions and more. Now there is barely anything left worth going to Silver Springs to see.

This is another example of Governor Rick Scott & the Florida Park Service’s poor management and how they don’t care about the citizens here in Ocala, FL
