✨ Fireworks ✨
September 3, 2023 5:30 PM
RESCHEDULED TO 9/3 at 5:30!
Unfortunately, the Amesbury Days fireworks that were scheduled for Tuesday, 4th of July, have been postponed. As the city prepared to mow Woodsom Farm for the event it was faced with endangered Bobolinks that were currently nesting in the fields. Under the direction of the State Ornithologist, MassWildlife agents joined by Mass Audubon Society conducted a walking grid search with the city to identify areas that could be safely mowed. As a result the area that was identified for both seating and parking was not large enough to accommodate the size of the crowds that attend this event. The fireworks have now been rescheduled to take place on
