I Heart IB wants to bring the fireworks back to Imperial Beach on the Fourth of July.

The group has spoken to the City of IB and was expected to get the council’s blessing at last night’s city council meeting. I Heart IB’s goal is to start raising $25,000, half the cost of the fireworks, through donations from residents and local businesses. The other $25,000 will hopefully be matched by the city, said Candy Unger co-founder of I Heart IB.

“We only have a few weeks to raise the money but I’m certain the community can rally together to make this happen. We will be going before the city council…to get their official blessing and then diligently working towards collecting donations,” wrote Unger in an email before the city council meeting.

I Heart IB and the IB Chamber of Commerce are working together on this project they call “Bring Back the Boom.”

“I think it’s going to happen. We already raised some money. As soon as the city council says yes, we’ll ask the community to pitch in,” said Unger.
