It usually happens to kick off summer and celebrate America around July 4th, but due to the pandemic that didn't happen again this year.

So the Danbury Fair Mall have announced that they will be holding their annual fireworks celebration on Friday night, September 3 from 6 PM until 10 PM. (Rain date is the next night, Saturday, September 4).

The theme this year is to send summer off with a bang, and that's just what will happen as the skies over Danbury come alive with this spectacular fireworks show.

The COVID-19 pandemic was responsible for canceling the fireworks show in 2020, and over concerns for public safety, the Mall decided to postpone the fireworks in July, following the lead from the City of Danbury who canceled their annual fireworks show at the Town Park.

Having been a part of the fireworks celebration since the early 1990s, I can tell you first hand that it's always been an integral part of summer in the Danbury area, and thousands have already showed their support for the event on the the mall's Facebook event page.

If you've ever attended one of the mall's firework shows, then you know it's not just about the fireworks. It's a total community celebration with Food Trucks, and of course entertainment provided by local favorite and ultimate MTV cover band, "The Zoo".

For best viewing and access to all the other festivities, the mall recommends getting there early and parking near the Primark South parking area. And of course, this family friendly event is absolutely free, just bring some cash for food, and maybe doing a little shopping prior to the fireworks, which usually start after dusk around 9:30 PM.
