    Independence Day Fireworks in Greenwich - Binney Park

    The Department of Parks and Recreation announces the locations of the two Town Fireworks Displays in celebration of Independence Day.  For the seventh consecutive year, the Town will present displays at Binney Park and Greenwich Point Park.  Both displays are scheduled for Saturday, July 7, with a rain date of Sunday, July 8.  Both shows will begin at dusk and it is strongly recommended that anyone planning to attend either display arrive early.        
    Anyone wishing to attend the Greenwich Point display must remember that the rules for Greenwich Point access will be the same as usual on the day of the fireworks. The Point will be closed when the maximum number of cars for the available parking spaces has been achieved.  Greenwich Point will be closed to vehicular traffic at 8:30 pm, even if the parking capacity has not been reached.  Cooperation with the Police will be needed.  Tailgating will not be permitted in Greenwich Point’s Parking Lots during and after the display.  Cooking is allowed only in regularly designated picnic areas and at Town owned grills.  Glassware is not permitted on or within 200 feet of the beach and swimming will not be allowed after sunset.  Dogs are not allowed in Greenwich Point Park.  Greenwich Point will be closed immediately following the conclusion of the display.  As always, spectators are urged to car pool, plan ahead and be patient.  Measures will again be taken by Town Safety personnel to provide expert medical coverage, a comfortable environment, and safe and efficient exit from Greenwich Point after the fireworks.  These measures will include:  a managed parking and traffic flow plan, assistance from G.E.M.S. with medical coverage, and portable lighting at strategic locations around Greenwich Point.  Spectators are urged to bring a flashlight and leaving the Point on bicycles is not advisable, especially for children.  Spectators at Greenwich Point will be entertained by a disc jockey stationed near the South Concession area starting at 7:00 pm.  The fireworks display will be fired from the corner of Greenwich Point (Bluff Point), well beyond the South Concession Stand.  A limited area of the Point will be restricted from public use on the day of the fireworks.  This restriction will be enforced.  People interested in walking the Point will find a path detour in the Bluff Point Area of the Park.  There will be many areas at Greenwich Point, including the main beach, which will offer exciting views of the dazzling colors that fill the sky.  Spectators in boats will enjoy great views from Long Island Sound around the Point.    
    The Binney Park display will feature the Sound Beach Community Band.  They will begin performing at 7:30 pm.  They will be located on the Showmobile and this year in the area of Binney Park near the flag pole near Sound Beach Avenue.  In addition, grills, cooking and open fires will be prohibited in Binney Park.  Pets should never be brought to any fireworks display.        
    Information sheets on the Greenwich Point display are available at the Greenwich Point Ticket Booth.  Please check our website, www.greenwichct.org, and click on “Check Out Parks and Recreation” for information on this and other programs.
