Please list all the places and the date fireworks events will take place this year.

Today is Stamford's Independence fireworks event.

They always do it a day before (sometimes on the weekend before) 4th of July in order to give people the option of enjoying Stamford's and New York City's events.

The fireworks are launched from a barge off the coast of the city and are visible along mucho of the coast of Stamford. Parks such as Cove Island, Cummings, and West Beach fill with large masses of people. Also, they are probably visible from some southeastern areas of New Canaan.

They might also be visible from the parking lot of the Stamford Town Center mall and also from I-95, but I advise against using the Interstate for this. lol

State Police Message. All fireworks are illegal in CT except sparklers and fountains.

despp: State Police Urge Caution With Personal Fireworks; List of Fireworks Displays


As the JULY 4th 2013 holiday approaches, the Connecticut State Police reminds Connecticut residents that fireworks are illegal in the State of Connecticut.

The public has been overwhelmed with advertisement, signs, and sales pitches of so-called “fireworks.” July 4th always raises questions about what is legal as far as fireworks are concerned. Many questions are received by State Troopers, Fire Marshals, Resident Troopers, and local Police statewide regarding fireworks. The questions reveal that many people are confused as to which “fireworks” can be used by citizens in our state.

To avoid confusion and caution our citizens, Connecticut Law 29-357 is very specific:

Only sparklers and fountains of not more than one hundred grams of pyrotechnic mixture per item, which are non-explosive and non-aerial, are legal in Connecticut. Sparklers and fountains can only be legally used by persons age 16 or older.

Novelty items such as party poppers, snakes, smoke devices and anything that emits a flame are not legal for private use in Connecticut. In addition to being illegal, exploding devices are dangerous and have caused serious injuries in the past. A number of house fires and grass fires have also been attributed to fireworks.

“Illegal fireworks bring with them the potential for property damage and they endanger human life. If a fire or explosion is made intentionally and causes damage or destruction, it could be designated as an arson, a class C felony,” noted Commissioner Reuben F. Bradford of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.

The safest way to enjoy this year’s Independence Day celebration is to attend a public display conducted at a state approved site by Connecticut licensed pyrotechnicians.

Flashing sign on I-95 north in Mass warning people not to set off fireworks or face fines or jail.

Nice! I guess explosions have to go off for the law to be enforced and for people to get it.
