7/3/2013 - Fireworks Festival

Fireworks Festival

Wednesday, July 3rd, 6:00pm

This year's annual Independence Day Fireworks Festival takes place on July 3rd with a music festival on the lawn of City Hall in advance and coinciding with the fireworks display over the Connecticut River.
 
The Festival begins around 6 p.m. and ends with fireworks splashing the night sky beginning around 9:30 p.m. Again, the Middletown Symphonic Band will accompany the fireworks with live music appropriate for the display.  The music begins with the Middletown High School Traveling Jazz Band at 6 p.m.
 
Our featured band is Forever Motown, featuring the music and choreography of Motown's hitmakers. The band has an 8 piece rhythm section and 4 vocalists. As in year's past, we provide the music and you provide the dancing on the lawn.
 
You can also expect some new features this year with additional food vendors in a user-friendly location adjacent to the festival grounds.  Download a map for more detailed information
