Historic Newburgh Fireworks Announce New Location Due to River Levels
The Historic Newburgh Fireworks are set to take place this Labor Day Weekend. The fireworks are set to take place on September 4th, and not only will there be an amazing fireworks show, the night will also host the Evening in the Park event as well. Food trucks, live music, fireworks, it's a full evening of fun.
Typically this event takes place down on the Newburgh riverfront. Historic Newburg Inc recently changed from having the annual fireworks show on July 4th to having them Labor Day weekend due to the river levels in July making it harder to schedule the fireworks. This year however mother nature had other plans, and the river levels are high for Labor Day weekend as well. Historic Newburgh Inc. put out a statement today saying that the show is still on, it will just be taking place at a different location. The new viewing location for the fireworks and event area will be at Newburgh Junior Baseball League Mulzer Fields.
