To the Editor: 

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The 2016 Darien Fireworks were a huge success on Saturday night.

Thousands of Darien residents young and old gathered on the grounds of the Darien High School for food, fun and fireworks.  Before the fireworks filled the sky, The Darien Community Band entertained us with wonderful   patriotic music. Many local food trucks offered a great variety of food to satisfy our appetites.

 This wonderful Darien tradition would not be possible without the tireless support of David Genovese and several local businesses including: The Darien Chamber of Commerce, Baywater Properties, Ring’s End, PG Properties, MacGuire, Cheswick & Tuttle, Darien Sport Shop, First County Bank, Halstead Property, Nielsen’s, Rand Insurance, The Darien Times, Merrill Lynch Darien, Dolcetti, Inc. and Orchard Tree Care. 

 We would also like to thank the Town of Darien, the Darien Community Band, the Darien Police Department, Post 53, the Darien Fire Marshall’s office, the Noroton Heights Fire Department, Jennifer Montanaro from the DAF and to our two Eagle Scouts that helped at the front gate, Thomas Hall and Dillon Foley!

Finally, a round of applause to the people of Darien who came out and enjoyed the show. See you next year!
