Firecracker Mural Unveiled
A new mural was unveiled Tuesday to help celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Genesis Firecracker Run. The 40 by 40-foot mural is on the side of a brick building in East Moline at "Firecracker Corner," - 18th Avenue and 13th Street.
Organizers say it's located at a gateway intersection, and will welcome visitors to the city. And also calls attention to the economic boost the run gives East Moline every year.
The Genesis Firecracker Run will be held on July 4th, including a 10-k and 5-k run, The Triumph Mile, a kiddie run, hospital bed races, and an after-race party.
