NO PERSONAL FIREWORKS ALLOWED
We encourage you to walk to the fireworks and Summer Music Festival as we will have less parking at the beach this year – as parking is no longer allowed on the baseball field. All overflow parking will be located at Rowayton School.
For fire safety issues, street parking is not allowed in the vicinity of Bayley Beach. Please observe all parking rules – we do not want to jeopardize future 4th of July events as has happened in the past, when Rowayton was unable to have fireworks for 5 years.
We will be offering a drop off lane at the guard shack as you enter Bayley Beach. You can drop off your passengers, coolers and other goods; please then proceed to park at Rowayton School.
The Sixth Taxing District will be charging out-of-towners walking into the beach, so residents need to bring their beach walk in passes.
