Annual fireworks set
The annual fireworks show at Wilton High School athletic complex is set for 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 4. The rain date is July 5.
Patron parking passes are being sold at the Parks and Recreation office in Comstock Community Center, 180 School Road, beginning at $35. Patron passes will guarantee a spot right up until the fireworks. Patron parking will be at the high school tennis courts on Route 7, Cider Mill School, the high school athletic parking area, or the high school central office lot.
The night of the event, a $20 general admission parking donation is requested. General admission parking will be at Comstock, Middlebrook School, the high school north lot, and Allen’s Meadow.
Parking costs help defray event expenses, which are funded completely by donations.
