12:33 p.m. — The area’s soggy weather has created ground conditions that are soggy enough to cause a postponement of Darien’s Fireworks to Thursday, July 22, a town official said.
Jami Gore, program supervisor for the town Parks & Recreation Department, asked to confirm a tip about the possible postponement, said that it was taking place, and an announcement was about to come out.
Other than the one-week postponement, Gore said other details about the event are expected to be the same.
Darienite.com will have further information about the event as it is released.
The planned Weed Beach Festive Night, originally scheduled for July 2, then postponed to Saturday, July 3, had to be cancelled because of continued wet weather, part of the weeks of unusually wet weather in the area.
UPDATE, 1:47 p.m. — The First Selectman’s Office released this announcement at 1:45 p.m.:
The Town of Darien is announcing that the fireworks scheduled to take place at Darien High School this Thursday, July 15 are being postponed to next Thursday, July 22.
Recent severe weather and continued rainy forecasts are effecting the staging, parking and viewing areas.
The rescheduled fireworks will follow the same start times as previously planned.
We look forward to sharing a special evening of fireworks with the community on July 22! In the meantime, for more information please visit the Town website (DarienCT.gov/Fireworks).
