2021 Fireworks Update

Although life is definitely returning to normal, there are still events and activities that are being postponed one last time with promises to be back for 2022! And unfortunately that means a lot of annual town firework displays are not taking place this year. But, not all are cancelled! Some festivities are back and planning on being better than ever. Take a look below to see the latest update of Fourth of July fireworks in lower Fairfield County.
