The "dueling" fireworks display on the banks of the Housatonic River between Derby and Shelton has become a must-see holiday event for people throughout the city, the Valley and even the state. This year's e City of Derby spectacular is scheduled for Friday, July 1, 2011 with Saturday, July 2, 2011 as its rain date.
As he did last year, Mayor Staffieri didn't believe, in these difficult economic times, the tax payers of Derby should be burdened with the costs.
As Mayor Staffieri did last year, he is asking citizens and businesses to make contributions to cover the $11,500 cost of the display.
Mayor Staffieri would like to take this opportunity to again thank the following individuals for their generosity last year:
Checks can be sent to the Mayor's Office, 1 Elizabeth Street, Derby, CT 06410. Checks should be made out to Derby Fireworks.
