Nashua officials OK July 4 fireworks funds
This week, more than $17,000 was approved for the fireworks event at Holman Stadium on July 4, a gathering that continues to be a family tradition for many local residents.
Last year the city utilized a new vendor for its fireworks display, opting to hire RS Fireworks of Hudson. At the time, a three-year optional contract was approved, allowing the contract to be reviewed annually.
An average of 8,000 people attend the city's fireworks display each Independence Day. In addition to the fireworks, other festivities are planned at Holman Stadium each year such as races, games and concerts.
Alderman Paul Chasse, Ward 6, said he thought the fireworks shows in earlier years — with a different vendor from Jaffrey — were more entertaining displays.
Lozeau noted that the Hudson company is closer to home, and that there is a cost savings of nearly $2,000 with RS Fireworks.
Lavoie said he guarantees that the Nashua fireworks display will be one to remember for years to come.
