Historic Newburgh Fireworks Taking Place September 4th
Typically when we think of fireworks we think of the 4th of July, but the town of Newburgh decided to do things a bit differently. They recently made the decision to move the annual firework show from the 4th of July to Labor Day Weekend. The town of Newburgh cited the unpredictable river levels in July as the reason they decided to no longer go with a 4th of July fireworks show and instead move it to Labor Day weekend.
And if you haven't been keeping track of the dates, Labor Day Weekend is coming up! It'll be here next weekend September 3rd-6th. If you're looking for something fun to do, the Historic Newburgh Fireworks & Evening in the Park is definitely an event you won't want to miss. Here's what the Facebook event page says about the upcoming fireworks show:
