Dunkirk Making Plans For Fourth Of July Fireworks

DUNKIRK — Dunkirk appears to be ready to bring back the Fourth of July fireworks this summer.

In a resolution that will come before Common Council on Tuesday, the city is proposing paying Starfire Corp. $30,000 for the fireworks show for July 4 with a rain date of July 5. The cost for the display will be $30,000.

Last year, due to COVID-19, the city did not have its annual Fourth of July festival or fireworks. As vaccinations continue to increase — and limits on gathering become less restrictive — the city appears to be making plans for some summer events.

In the past, the Fourth of July city festival has been the most popular and largest attended event of the year.

As for Memorial Day, services will be held at Memorial Park by the Dunkirk Joint Veterans Council at 10 a.m. However, there will not be a parade on Central Avenue.
