The Town of Wallingford will be hosting the Annual Fireworks Display near the grounds of Mark T. Sheehan High School on Saturday, July 6, 2013. The display is scheduled to start after 9:00 p.m. There is no rain date. In the event of inclement weather, the decision to cancel the display will be made by 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. Local television and radio stations will be notified of the cancellation.
Public parking will be available at Moran Middle School, Sheehan High School, Highland Elementary School, and in the paved parking lot of Our Lady of Fatima Church. Parking in fire lanes, on sidewalks, or on the grass is prohibited.
There will be no parking along Hope Hill Road and some of the side streets where posted. Through traffic on Hope Hill Road will be prohibited when all of the parking lots at the schools are full, or at 8:30 p.m., whichever comes first.
The fireworks will be visible from the grounds of any of the schools where public parking is available. Spectators should plan to arrive early; well in advance of dusk is strongly recommended.
Given the size of the crowd and the close proximity of spectators, the use of any type of fireworks, including the use of sparklers, is prohibited on any Town property. Please note that alcoholic beverages are also prohibited. In addition, the Police Department routinely receives complaints about the use of silly string and snappers by children in the crowd. Accordingly, we are requesting that parents supervise their children's activities so that the fireworks display remains an enjoyable family event.
At the conclusion of the event, there will be two NORTHBOUND lanes of traffic on Hope Hill Road from the northern most driveways of Sheehan High School and Moran Middle School to ROUTE 68. There will be two SOUTHBOUND lanes on Hope Hill Road from the southern most driveways of Sheehan High School and Moran Middle School to the intersection of PARKER FARMS ROAD. Officers will be on site directing traffic throughout the event.
