Waterbury 4th of July fireworks officially moved to Holyland

This will be a pretty site to see the fireworks from the hill at night…
My children & I used to love seeing the cross lit up at night when we were driving home from visiting out of state family, the children knew once they saw the cross we were not that much farther to drive home.
I think it’s nice that the town is putting the fireworks up on the high hill so more people can view them from the comfort & safety of their backyards – would be nice if more cities would consider doing the same & looking for high points to set off the fireworks so more people can enjoy them & have less people trying to find parking spaces & then walking to go see them – with young children it can be a drag since some children fall asleep at 7:30 & fireworks don’t usually start until 9
Kudos for the officials who decided to make the fireworks more visible to the more people.

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Waterbury officials decided Tuesday night that the decision to move the city’s Independence Day fireworks to a new location will move forward as planned.

At the Board of Alderman meeting Tuesday night, the motion was raised to conduct a public hearing to let residents decide if the fireworks should be moved from Municipal Stadium to Holyland. The board rejected that motion, citing that it was an executive decision made by city leaders, and it was not their place to change that.

The city will do a test of the fireworks at Holyland on Thursday June 4th around 9:00 p.m.

The City of Waterbury’s 2015 Independce Day fireworks will take place on Saturday July 4th, starting around 9:30 p.m.
