Boone Hall releases statement about rowdy fireworks show Wednesday night

  • Thursday, May 16, 2013

A fireworks display Wednesday night was a little too loud for some in Mount Pleasant. In a statement by Rick Benthall, spokesperson for Boone Hall Plantation, he acknowledged that “the level of noise generated by this show was very loud, disturbing and upsetting to the residents who live in surrounding areas near Boone Hall.”

Benthall said a private special event was hosted by an “outside business” with a nightcap of a fireworks show. He added that “a county permit was sought and granted, and the Awendaw Fire Department was on hand to make sure fire and safety regulations were observed, monitored and followed.” As is normal protocol, area homeowners associations were notified, Benthall noted.

“Over the years, Boone Hall has allowed outside organizations and businesses to present fireworks shows, as long as those displays stay in compliance with county permits and fire and safety regulations,” the statement read. “We also try to make sure these displays are 20 minutes or less in length and end at a reasonable hour.”

But, things went a little too far. “We want to inform our neighbors that this level of noise was unanticipated by Boone Hall,” Benthall said.

“We sincerely apologize to everyone affected by this noise, and please be assured that we will do everything we can to make sure for any future events, which are hosted at Boone Hall, that disturbing noise of this level does not take place anymore.”
