Fairfield, CT – Thousands of people from all over the region came together Monday night with one mission: to witness one of the greatest attractions Fairfield has to offer.
The annual fireworks show, wherein rockets are launched from a barge off Jennings Beach, commenced at approximately 9:15 p.m. to the delight of thousands of people that had gathered along a three-mile stretch of shore. Sitting towel to towel, blanket to blanket, chair beside chair, they cheered and oohed as colorful patterns spread across the sky.
Many spectators had Glo-lites around their necks, which accented the beach scene. Others burned candles or had small lanterns. They wore shorts and tees or bathing suits still from an afternoon spent frolicking in the sand and water.
From the loud applause that followed the show, it was clear a grand time was had by all. Happy 235th Birthday, America!
