FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Fairfield's Independence Day fireworks show will light up the July skies shortly after 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 2.
The show begins at approximately 9:15 p.m. Rain dates are July 3, 4 and 5 if necessary.
Fireworks can be seen easily from either Penfield or Jennings beaches. Parking lots can be accessed with a season beach pass or by purchasing a daily pass for $50.
The Park and Recreation Department is limiting the amount of non-permit vehicles to purchase day passes to park at the beaches. Daily passes will be limited to the first 350 vehicles at Jennings Beach and 50 vehicles at Penfield Beach. A daily parking fee will also be charged to park at Ash Creek parking lot the day of the fireworks. No additional non-permit vehicles will be allowed into the beach parking areas when the limitations are reached.
In the interest of public safety, the below listed streets will be posted with “No Parking Tow-Away” signs on July 2. Any vehicles parked in the designated tow zone areas after 5 p.m. on July 2 will be towed at the owner’s expense. This is a necessary action to provide an access to the beach area for fire apparatus and other emergency vehicles and to facilitate the movement of the anticipated large volume of traffic. Streets to be posted:
- Reef Road
- Penfield Road
- Lalley Boulevard
- Rowland Road
- One Rod Highway
- Edwards Street
- South Benson Road
- Portions of Fairfield Beach Road.
At the start of the fireworks, streets leading from the beach area will be “one way” to the Post Road and no traffic will be permitted to go south into the beach area until exiting traffic has cleared.
