Solon Springs is sending summer off with a bang this weekend. The Labor Day celebration features live music, food vendors and plenty of cakes, but not the kind you eat. The main event is a 20-minute fireworks display put on by the Solon Springs Friends of Fireworks. The local pyro enthusiasts have been planning and producing such displays for years.
