Due to current restrictions, there will only be the firework show. There will not be any planned events in the parks such as food trucks, concerts, etc. Harbin Park will be close and be cleared of the public at dusk. All other parks will close at their normal times (dusk) including Village Green. The fireworks show has been designed to help increase the viewing area throughout Fairfield by utilizing bigger shells and a larger shooting zone. The fireworks show will last approximately 20 minutes. Enjoy the fireworks with members from your same family at home! Our goal is to provide a fun and memorable experience in the safest manner possible.
Get up close with more than a dozen, dazzling hot-air balloons lighting up against the night sky followed by a spectacular fireworks grand finale. Enjoy all of Coney Island’s favorites like Sunlite Pool, Cannonball Cove, and Twister. PLUS, challenge yourself on the brand new inflatable obstacle course, the Challenge Zone!
