Fireworks set for Friday

Published 10:49 pm Wednesday, July 20, 2011

The forecast is sunny and hot on Friday, which means the fireworks should go off as scheduled at Constant’s Wharf.

The pyrotechnic display was postponed from July 4 because of rain that evening. However, they were rescheduled for this week’s TGIF concert, where A Touch of Spice will be providing the music.

This is the last TGIF concert at Constant’s Wharf before the series moves north to Bennett’s Creek Park Aug. 5 through Sept. 2. Other activities at TGIF concerts include a children’s area and concessions. The fireworks are set to begin at 9 p.m.

The park and concessions open to the public at 6 p.m., with the band starting at 6:30 p.m. One group providing concessions is ECHO (Emergency Communicators Helping Others). Made up of Suffolk 911 dispatchers, the group offers cotton candy, popcorn, snow-cones, sodas, candy and chips for sale as a fundraiser for the 2012 Telecommunicator’s Banquet.

Attendees are encouraged to use the shuttle services that will be set up at the Fresh Pride and First Baptist Main Street parking lots.
