Fireworks will once again shine in Newport Harbor this year, as New York City announced on Thursday that its annual July 4th fireworks display will return. The annual tradition cancelled last summer due to the coronavirus pandemic is currently scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 4th at 9pm, and July 5th is a rainy day.
Jamestown is currently planning to host the annual July 4th fireworks display on Saturday, July 3. In order to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever before, the City of Newport also launched a special fundraising event to allow businesses and individuals to become sponsors to enhance their display. In a letter on the city government website, Mayor Jeanne Marie Napolitano stated that her goal is to raise all the funds needed for the fireworks display through cooperation with businesses and community members . “Holding one of the city’s most popular and popular events can be quite expensive-not only because of the fireworks display itself, but also because the city bears all related public safety and transportation expenses,” New York City said in its statement. website. Premier sponsorships of US$5,000, US$2,500, and US$1,500 will be provided this year, but the city government said that we are very grateful for any amount of donation, and those who choose to donate will also be regarded as honorary co-hosts. Anyone who is interested in making a donation can make a donation by cheque. The cheque should be made payable to “City of Newport” with “Fireworks Fund” on the remark line and mailed to the mayor’s office at 43 Broadway, Newport , RI 02840.

As the COVID-19 pandemic begins to weaken and summer is approaching, I am happy to announce that we are currently preparing to light up Newport Harbor again through the annual July 4th fireworks celebration.
I am writing today to hope that you can help promote this year’s exhibition with me and other members of the city council and become an honorary co-host.
As you might suspect, hosting one of the most popular events in the city can be quite expensive, not only because of the fireworks display itself, but also because the city bears all related public safety and transportation costs.
I hope this will become a tradition, and I intend to work with our local business community and residents like you to raise all the necessary funds for this year’s fireworks display. Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Please make the check payable to “City of Newport” and indicate “Fireworks Fund” on the remarks line and mail it to the Mayor’s Office, City Hall, 43 Broadway, Newport, RI 02840.
The July 4th fireworks display in Newport is a truly wonderful tradition, and I hope you can join all of us at City Hall to make this year’s event a memorable event.
