After some problems finding the right location for the annual town fireworks display, town officials have agreed to hold them at the high school after all, but apparently at a different spot on the campus.
Darien will get its 2018 fireworks on July 7, with a rain date of July 8, after school district officials agreed on a site at Darien High School and the town Parks and Recreation Department took over organization of the event, Selectman Susan Marks and volunteer Stacey Tie said in an announcement, giving proof Thursday afternoon that the fireworks will still be there.
“We are so grateful to the Darien Parks and Recreation Department, they have raised their hand to plan the 2018 town fireworks!” Marks and Tie said. “Thank you also, to David Genovese and the many sponsors who year after year make donations to this wonderful community event.
“We also want to thank, the Darien Board of Education for the use of the Darien High School campus, the Noroton Heights Fire Department, the Darien fire marshal, along with his department, the Darien Police Department and Darien Post 53 for their participation in this spectacular community celebration.”
More details about the event will be available later this Spring, Marks said.
