City of Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino announced the return of fireworks at Hyde Park at dusk Sunday, July 4. This return comes after the suspension of fireworks due to COVID-19 regulations and safety precautions in 2020.
“We are pleased to announce that our partner in bringing the fireworks back to Hyde Park this year, and our principal sponsor is Joe Cecconi’s Chrysler Complex,” Restaino said. “Joe Cecconi Chrysler is a great local business with over 50 years of service in Niagara Falls.”
Owner and President of Joe Cecconi’s Chrysler Complex Mike Jensen said, “We at Joe Cecconi’s Chrysler Complex have been a part of the Niagara Falls community for more than 50 years. The community has been very supportive of our business during that time, and we’re thrilled for the opportunity to give back and be a part of this year’s Fourth of July celebration.”
The mayor’s office stated, “With the reopening of New York state, a 70% vaccination rate, and recent updates to COVID-19 regulations, the return of fireworks at Hyde Park is the first of many activities that will be seen as more activities return for the summer.”
Restaino said, “The City of Niagara Falls is proud to be able to resume the fireworks display at Hyde Park on our nation’s birthday. With the celebrations seen throughout the state as pandemic restrictions are eased, it seems fitting to bring back the fireworks at Hyde Park.”
