HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — In Hamden, the bandstand is empty, the speakers covered in tarps and the fields are empty as the firework show has been postponed until Saturday.
Locked in a secrete vehicle, in a secure location, Tim Lunn Hamden Deputy Fire Marshal is taking no chances as they have to hold onto the fireworks for one more day.
“We offloaded that truck and put them on another secure vehicle and the shooter and myself are going to be watching them all night long waiting for tomorrow morning when we can start setting them up,” said Lunn.
While Mother Nature may have rained on the parade, Lunn is concerned about her light show.
“They are explosives, we have to keep fire away. Lightning, let’s hope it doesn’t get too bad tonight. Safety is a big thing with explosives,” said Lunn.
It is a scene that is playing out all across Connecticut. In West Haven, tarps cover the fireworks and security is on high alert to make sure no one tries to get into the secured area. In Meriden, the fireworks have been postponed until July 8, but Jose Soto from Meriden hadn’t heard.
“We were trying to and hoping to watch the fireworks tonight. And see what’s going to happen to see, if they are canceled or not? So we are going to prepare to go home and come back,” said Soto.
