KILLINGTON — The town postponed its annual fireworks display due to a severe storm Wednesday night. The fireworks will be set off tonight at 9:30 p.m. at the Johnson Recreation Center off River Road.

Manchester to
set off fireworks
MANCHESTER — The Fourth of July fireworks, which were interrupted by a severe thunderstorm on July 4, have been rescheduled for today at 9:30 p.m. at the Dana L. Thompson Memorial Park, according to Town Manager John O’Keefe.
Applejack Field will be open to the public beginning at 8 p.m. for picnicking.
The presentation, “A Tribute to America,” will be performed from the beginning of the night and include all the recorded music and narration that would have accompanied the fireworks on Wednesday. Unlike Wednesday, the weather forecast calls for clear skies in Manchester today, O’Keefe said.
The live music performance scheduled on Wednesday went on as planned and will not be repeated.
The park and Applejack Field are located off of Bonnet Street. For more information, call the Manchester Parks and Recreation Department at 362-1439.
