Ithaca fireworks return to Stewart Park July 1

Ithaca fireworks return to Stewart Park July 1

The annual Ithaca fireworks show returns to Stewart Park this year on July 1.

Last year’s event marked the return of the spectacle to the city park, which previously had been hosted by the area’s higher education institutions.

Volunteer coordinator for the event Vicki Taylor says you can catch the show from the Farmer’s Market, Cass Park, Sunset Park and many other areas throughout the city.

Information about parking restrictions, road closures, and the schedule of events can be found at ithacafireworks.com starting next week.

All of the funding for the project comes from community donations and foundations.

“People who love fireworks make this happen,” says Taylor.
