PAWTUCKET- Mayor Donald R. Grebien and the Pawtucket City Council have announced that the City of Pawtucket will be hosting an Independence Day celebration fireworks event at McCoy Stadium to be held on July 3rd at 5:30pm. There will be live music and food trucks parked in the Joseph Jenks Junior High School front parking lot. Fireworks will begin shortly after 9:00pm.
“We have received many requests from residents to once again host the event over the past several months and are excited to be able to keep this tradition alive for another year,” said Mayor Grebien. “This crowd favorite event brings our community together and is something the whole family can enjoy.”
