Despite No Festival, Fireworks Still Set For Saturday


The Cheshire Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Town of Cheshire has announced that fireworks will be displayed this Saturday, Sept. 12, at Bartlem Park.

Viewing of the fireworks will take place on the north side of Bartlem Park. Squares will be marked off on the field, safely distanced, for families to enjoy. Those attending are being asked to bring a blanket or chairs. The field will open at 6 p.m. for people to claim a spot. There will be 500 people allowed on the field per the Governor’s order.

The Chamber asks all entering the park to remain at least six feet apart and to wear masks. There will be two entrances to the field and those attending must have their entire party present to be counted. The fireworks will start at dusk.

There will be three exit areas available and it is asked that half the viewers on the field to remain until the other half have exited.

“We are excited to be collaborating with the Cheshire Chamber of Commerce to continue the fireworks display this year. While we will miss the traditional Fall Festival, the fireworks display will allow us to still come together to celebrate as a community. I thank the Chamber staff, who are working tirelessly with our local health district and town personnel to insure the event adheres to COVID guidelines and offers our community a safe and positive event that we can look forward to attending,” said Robert Oris, chairman of the Cheshire Town Council
