New venue owner brings back annual fireworks

Local News

DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — The new owners of Turtle Run Golf Club and Banquet Center plan to take over with a bang Monday.

A Danville couple recently bought the venue, and the ownership officially changes hands Monday. To mark the transition, they’re bringing back Turtle Run’s annual fireworks. They said the venue stopped having them about five years ago because of cost and liability. The new owners say they’re happy to bring them back.

“I can’t tell you how many people have come up to us and said we’re so glad you’re bringing them back because this is what I did when I was younger. I remember coming out here — and I remember my parents bringing me out here, and we’re so excited to come back. We have people contacting us on Facebook that are coming in from out of town.”

The new owners say this year’s show will be bigger than ever before — and that’s not the only change they plan to make. They say they plan to add a live music venue where the swimming pools used to be.
