Fairfield's 4th: Stars & Stripes, speeches, sky spectacular

Fairfield unfurls a star-spangled salute to the Independence Day holiday next week that includes walking tours commemorating the town's burning by the British during the American Revolution, a dramatic reading of the Declaration of Independence at a ceremony on historic Town Hall Green and, of course, fireworks.
The town's traditional Independence Day observance begins with a ceremony at 10 a.m. Thursday on Town Hall Green. Sponsored by the United Veterans of Fairfield, the ceremony includes a dramatic reading of the Declaration of Independence and singing patriotic songs. It is followed by a reception hosted by the Eunice Dennis Burr Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in the Old Academy building.

Beach festivities, fireworks

If you plan to head to the beach, you may want to get there early. The Atwood Express Oldies Band will perform at Jennings Beach from 5 to 7 p.m. The fireworks are set to go off around 9:15, and parking at both Jennings and Penfield beaches is free after 6 with no beach parking permit required. The rain date is Friday. In case of inclement weather, call 203-256-3144 to check on the status of the fireworks display.
