Middletown Fireworks Festival (Municipal Building)
July 1 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The City of Middletown Fireworks Festival takes place along the Connecticut River with viewing spots throughout the City. The Festival itself takes place on the lawn of the Municipal Bldg, 245 deKoven Drive and includes music, ethnic foods/ice cream vendors, and children’s activities. There is also live music, and ethnic foods/ice cream vendors located in Harbor Park directly on the riverfront. The fireworks will be shot from a barge on the river. From what I’ve been told, ours is the 3rd largest fireworks festival in the State, it’s destined to be number 1 some day. Featured bands are Los Sugar Kings – a Boston-based Cuban roots, rock & reggae fusion band; Sweet Daddy Cool Breeze peforming energized blues and featuring Jaimoe (Allman Bros. Band) on drums; and the Middletown Symphonic Band performing live with the fireworks display. The event will be simulcast over WMRD/WLIS radio. (Rain date is July 2)
