Branford Fireworks Entry #2

The annual Branford fireworks will be held June 22 at Branford Point.

The location had been a question after the fireworks were moved last year to Foote Park. The move was made necessary at the Harbor Street Bridge was under construction.

Fireworks committee member Ray Ingraham confirmed the location.

The rain date will be June 23.

The Foote Park location did have some advantages, notably in traffic management. But Branford Point has been used for years and is part of Branford tradition, something residents made clear in a poll in March.

We asked the public where the fireworks should be held in an online poll, and over 70% of respondents chose to have the fireworks back at Branford Point.

Foote Park will still be a popular viewing location for the fireworks. There will likely be food trucks at both location as well.
