Waterbury Fireworks Block Parties – July 5, 2015
On July 5, 2015 the City of Waterbury Connecticut displayed fireworks from Holy Land atop Pine Hill.
Mayor Neil O'Leary encouraged neighborhood associations to organize block parties to celebrate Independence Day, and then to watch the fireworks together.
$1000 in prize money was awarded to four of the groups:
Most Patriotic – Exchange Place Towers
Best Food – Brooklyn Neighborhood Association
Largest – Lil' Freddy Foundation
Best Entertainment – South End Neighborhood Association
This video features those groups and others across the city showing Waterbury's rich tradition of community groups and family celebration.
