For 45 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.

We are incredibly pleased with the community support for Thunderfest and we are very grateful to Citizens First Bank for again sponsoring this year's event! Their support and the hard work of the Kiwanis members and local volunteers will make 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!!
