Pawtucket Announces July 3rd Celebration
PAWTUCKET- Mayor Grebien and the Pawtucket City Council have announced that the City of Pawtucket will be hosting an Independence Day celebration fireworks event at McCoy Stadium to be held on July 3rd at 9:00pm.
“For over a year, our community because of the pandemic, like so many others across the nation and the world, has gone without community events that bring us all together,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “We hope that the continuation of this longstanding tradition will help to bring a sense of normalcy and Pawtucket pride to the community that everyone can enjoy. ”
This year’s event is structured to be different than in years past since there will be no baseball game prior and the stadium will be closed to the public. The City has engaged with Atlas PyroVision Entertainment Group, Inc. through the Fireworks Committee and the display will be set off from the inside of the stadium to be seen across the city. In case of bad weather, the rain date is Monday, July 5th
“I want to thank the Council and all of the residents who have reached out about this event,” continued Grebien. “We know it is a crowd favorite and, now that restrictions are lifting, are happy to have celebrations once again.”
The City will be providing more information on the event soon which will be located at www.pawtucketri.com or the Pawtucket Mayor’s Office social media.
