New Britain’s 2018 “Great American Boom” festival and fireworks, celebrating Independence Day, will be held on July 4th in Stanley Quarter Park.
Fireworks are set to begin at around 9:15pm.
New Britain’s fireworks display is very popular. Tens of thousands of people, both New Britain residents and visitors, join in a festive community spirit in celebration of the Independence of the nation.
In 2017, some 40,000 people gathered in New Britain on July 4th to view New Britain’s traditionally spectacular Independence Day fireworks display. While thousands gathered at Stanley Quarter Park, where the fireworks are actually launched from, thousands more gathered in numerous locations throughout a large swath of the city.
From 5:00pm to 9:00pm, there is to be a festival, featuring singer Latanya Farrell, whose performance will begin at 6:00pm. Farrell’s website says, “Former CT Star Search champion, Latanya Farrell is a gifted singer, songwriter, and performer who moves audiences with passion, energy, and a love for music and life!”
Prior to the fireworks, the city traditionally holds a festival in Stanley Quarter Park, featuring live entertainment, food vendors, inflatables, face painters, and magicians.
The rain date for the 2018 fireworks in New Britain is July 5, 2018.
