The South Hadley fireworks are held annually at the Michael E. Smith Middle School located on 100 Mosier Street.
With the Covid-19 pandemic still with us, we are encouraging people to wear masks when they cannot socially distance themselves, and are asking those that feel unwell to stay home. There are plenty of other vantage points in South Hadley where you can get a good view.
The 2021 fireworks event will take place on Saturday, September 4th with a rain date of Sunday, September 5th. The festivities will start at 3pm and will include DJ Anthony Manzi, South Hadley Community Band (7pm start), games and activities, the Happy Face Painter, bounce houses and the Futsal Soccer blowup field. The Girl Scouts will have glowsticks and other glow products. The actual fireworks show will start around 8:15pm.
People are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or chairs and plenty of bug spray! Being on school grounds, alcohol and tobacco products are not allowed.
We will also have a variety of food trucks.
• Nom Nom Hut: Dumplings and Fried Pork Belly
• Taylor Springs Farm: Burgers, Dogs, Loaded Fries
• JND Amusements: Dough Factory and Sundae World
• Lemonade Stand: Fresh squeezed Lemonade
• Shoobie Doobie Juicy
