Middletown is making good on its promise to reschedule the town’s Fourth of July fireworks canceled because of COVID-19 restrictions.
The display will take place on New Year’s Day, shooting off about 7 pm. Jan. 1 from Silver Lake Park, like they normally do.
Normally, the park right off Main Street would be home to large foot traffic during a fireworks displays, but this year it will be closed to both foot and car traffic in an attempt to limit crowds.
Middletown officials are asking residents to enjoy the fireworks from the safety of their own home or vehicle.
“I live close to Silver Lake Park,” said Matt Wichert of Middletown. “But I’m only going to watch if I can see them from my bedroom window.”
