Holman Stadium plans road race, kids field day, fireworks
“We are anticipating between 6,000 or 7,000 people for the fireworks display at the stadium,” said Nicholas Caggiano, superintendent of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
The Children’s Field Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Holman Stadium on Amherst Street.
“Everything is free for this event, which is family-oriented and filled with activities,” said Caggiano.
Families are welcome to return to Holman Stadium for a free concert by Boston City Rhythm from 6 to 8 p.m.
At 8 p.m. on Thursday, a brief ceremony will be held to induct a father and son into the Holman Stadium Sports Legends Hall of Fame. The late Joe Andruskevich will be inducted along with his son, Greg Andruskevich of Nashua.
“With all of the rain in the forecast, we are really hoping for some good weather,” said Caggiano. If it does rain on Thursday night, he said the fireworks will take place on Saturday instead.
In addition to the 15 officers on duty for the night shift, Lt. E. Zenus Paulson of the Nashua Police Department said about 40 additional officers will be on detail in and around Holman Stadium for the festivities.
City fire, police and emergency management crews are working together to ensure a safe event for citizens, added Paulson.
“We want everyone to enjoy the holiday, but we want it to be done safely,” he said.
