RCA July 4th Fireworks CANCELLED
Saturday, July 4th, 2020 at 9:00pm approx.
As most of you know, we made the difficult decision to cancel the annual July 4th fireworks. We have also decided that rescheduling the event is not possible. When considering how we could allow anyone in town who wanted to come and enjoy the show while abiding by the state and CDC gathering guidelines, we realized there was no reasonable, safe, or cost-effective way to hold this event. We know this is yet another disappointment, another annual festivity canceled and we apologize.
Rowayton Fireworks will light up the sky offshore from Bayley Beach on Saturday evening, July 4th. The fireworks show, put on by Atlas PyroVision, will be launched from a barge beginning at approximately 9:00pm. The performance will last approximately 30 minutes.
In addition to the RCA’s sponsorship, the show is made possible each year thanks to generous contributions from the Sixth Taxing District, Wee Burn Country Club, Roton Point Association, Tokeneke Club, Belle Island Improvement Association, Rowayton Beach Association, and Pine Point Association.
Parking and Traffic
Access to parking at Bayley Beach will be according to daytime rules: vehicles with a Bayley Beach sticker will be admitted, a $40 Special Event Parking Fee will be charged to non-residents. We encourage you to walk to the fireworks if possible, as the parking lot fills up early!
For Bayley Beach rules and regulations, visit the Sixth Taxing District’s website.
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.
