Middlebury, Connecticut: There will be a blast from the past this July 4th at Quassy Amusement and Waterpark here as “3-D” fireworks light up the sky over Lake Quassapaug.
Special “3-D” fireworks viewing glasses will be sold for $1 on July 4th at Quassy to benefit Healthy Eyes Alliance. The glasses will be on sale starting in the afternoon until they are sold out.
“Our guests really enjoy the novelty of the ‘3-D’ fireworks glasses,” noted Quassy President Eric Anderson. “We’ve been doing the ‘3-D’ fireworks for more than a decade now and thanks to our presenting partners, the response continues to be phenomenal.”
The park will again shoot its 10:15 p.m. fireworks display from barges anchored offshore so everyone attending the park that evening will be able to enjoy them.
