No Fireworks this 4th

No fireworks

What?!? No fireworks this year? There will be no fireworks show at 10 pm on the 4th of July sponsored by the Fourth of July committee. For several years they had a fireworks technician that did a wonderful job. He was not available last year and the spectators were clearly disappointed in the show. The committee realized it was subpar to what they had in the past. Considering their budget, they could not afford to put on the same show that Ridgefield was used to seeing.

If funds become available next year, the committee will resume a fireworks show. The dance in the park will still go from 5:30pm until 9:30pm.

If anyone is ever interested in helping with the 4th of July celebration they are always looking for volunteers. It takes 100 volunteers and a committee of 23 to put on the parade and festival. Let’s hope for good weather this year and a great festival. For a schedule, you can go to
