Jaffrey’s Festival of Fireworks will return, but at new venue
Last April, organizers of the Jaffrey Festival of Fireworks, the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce, Atlas PyroVision Productions in Jaffrey and the Silver Ranch Airport announced the event was permanently canceled due to rising costs brought on by last summer’s bomb threat.
It will not be held in Jaffrey, but it will continue to be a fundraiser for the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce, Shea said, and the show will remain in the Monadnock Region.
Cyndy Burgess, co-chairman of the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce Festival Committee, said in an announcement, “We are proud to be part of the Festival of Fireworks that has been a popular family event with the largest firework display in New England, remaining right here in the Monadnock Region.”
“It was a small grassroots fireworks event for the community to raise money for the community, and for Atlas it was our testing ground,” Shea said.
The Jaffrey Chamber members will continue to manage parking at the event; unfortunately there is no way to continue the airport’s involvement, Shea said.
The show will be held on the third Saturday of August, which is Aug. 16 this year. The show this year has a classic rock theme, titled Rock’n the Stars.
