Tewksbury Brings Back Fourth Of July Fireworks ... Just Not On July 4th

Jul 05, 2015 02:00AM ● Published by Bill Gilman

After a one-year absence, the Tewksbury Fourth of July Celebration is back!
It just won't be taking place on July 4.
According to Selectman Mark Kratman, the celebration will take place in two parts on Sunday, July 5 at the Livingston Street Recreation Area.
From 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., there will be games, races and other traditional Fourth of July fun. Events will include the doll carriage and bike decoration contests, as well as the crowning of Little Mister and Little Miss Tewksbury!
Food and beverages will be available throughout the day, starting with breakfast, sponsored by Donna's Donuts and the Tewksbury Rotary Club.
After a break in the afternoon, the celebration continues at 7:30 p.m. with music, courtesy of a local DJ, followed by a fireworks display scheduled to start at 9:30 p.m.
According to Kratman, the return of the fireworks and the Fourth of July Celebration were made possible by the recent carnival.
"The fireworks themselves cost about $7,000," said Kratman. "We are able to pay for them through the money that was raised at the carnival last week. It went very well."
All of the events scheduled for July 5 are weather dependent. According to Kratman, there is no rain date for either the daytime celebration or the fireworks.
As always, volunteers are needed and welcomed for an event of this type. If you are interested in volunteering, e-mail Selectman Mark Kratman at MarkKratman@verizon.net .
