I hope you will take some time today to celebrate the birth of our nation and reflect on the war that was fought for our independence.
The United States is a country founded on the principles of freedom and liberty, which is what makes it the greatest country to ever exist.
It is also a holiday spent enjoying at barbecues and fireworks shows with family and friends.
I ask that you join me in honoring the brave soldiers who made our country’s independence possible, as well as the men and women in uniform currently stationed around the globe who preserve our freedom and liberty every day.
In Ridgefield, a fireworks celebration is again scheduled for today on the grounds of Ridgefield High School. Rain appears to be a possibility for tonight. If that is the case, then the rain date is tomorrow, July 5.
Gates open at 6pm and fireworks begin after dark. Parking passes can be purchased at the entrance to RHS.
Although grilling and alcoholic drink are prohibited, a variety of food trucks and vendors will be on site.
I wish you and your family a wonderful Fourth of July holiday!
