West Haven residents have gathered at Bradley Point Park on Tuesday evening where the Savin Rock Fireworks Spectacular is set to begin that night.

The heat hasn’t gone anywhere and neither has the humidity. While there are some threats of showers, the city says the show is still on. 

News 8 spoke to West Haven Fire Marshall Keith Flood who had been there all day setting up. He says tradition will bring people together on Tuesday.

“I’ve lived in the city for 52 years, and we have had fireworks ever since I was a little kid. It’s been an ongoing tradition for as long as I can remember. Just brings out a lot of people,” he explained.

“We came from Maine and this is our family tradition. The weather is always normally pretty good. We come down even if it’s not the best,” added Ariana Hubert of Maine.

Viewers from all over are gathering for the show. The city is expecting 100,000 people to attend.
