This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the rain dampened attendance last night at the Family 4th fireworks show at Gas Works. With 50,000 or so expected, today One Reel put the official tally at 31,000.
“This is definitely lower than we anticipated and hoped for given the amazing circumstances surrounding the event this year,” One Reel’s Mikhael Mei Williams told My Wallingford. “We’re very pleased with the show and the reaction and feedback we received from people who did join us in the park was that it was the best show they’d ever seen! It really was a pretty magical day; even with the rain it couldn’t dampen the spirit of the event!”
