RIVERFEST FIREWORKS RESCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY, JULY 18TH – 9:30 PM
We now resume our regularly scheduled post…..
4th of July. Independence Day. The Birth of our Great Nation. A perfect reason to light up the skies. Actually wanted to say it a different way, but my “image consultants” say that it might be in poor taste to say “Blow sh*t up”.
Since fireworks displays are my favorite event out of everything, it’s never to early to start posting about them. My goal is to list EVERY single display. It may take another year or two, but I will get the job done. I do this because I know there are many other firecracker fanatics like me out there, so I will do the research, and we all will have lots of fun. Just be patient, as I am still waiting for the main list to come in from my sources, so this will be an ever evolving post, so check often. I will leave it right at the top of my headlines section.
I will also list them in the Ct Events and Things-to-do-in-the-Ct calendar as well. All the addresses will be there, and I do have a directions app as well. Just so you know, I will have over 8K events listed, so the best way to find what you want to do is to use the search boxes. You can choose by category or town. Make sure you hit the search button when you have made the selection. Oh, and my website works best when you are using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Reality is, IE sucks….
A huge shout out again this year to Atlas PyroVison Productions for their help on this one. A vast majority of these shpws are theirs, and they always bring the bang when they are in town. If you have a little vacation spot in New Hampshire or Maine (where the good stuff is legal) make sure you stop in at the various Atlas Fireworks factories. Just to make sure you do, here is a link to all there locations. Make sure you tell them thanks for all the great shows they do in the Ct!
