Thunderfest Fireworks

For 44 years, the Kiwanis Club of Bowling Green has provided a fun-filled, family fireworks spectacular - now known as Thunderfest - as a fundraiser for more than 30 children's organizations in Bowling Green and Warren County. Last year, Thunderfest raised more than $60,000 for local organizations serving children and their families with 100% of the proceeds being returned to non-profit organizations.

The 2015 Thunderfest will be no different! There will be concessions, live music, children's activities, inflatables and a live broadcast by SAM 100.7

We are incredibly pleased with the community support for Thunderfest and we are very grateful to Citizens First for again sponsoring this year's event! Their support and the hard work of the Kiwanis members and local volunteers made this year's event the most magnificent yet. This type of collaboration among the business and civic community is what makes south central Kentucky such a great place to live and is what has made the fireworks event such a success for the past four decades!!
