Fireworks and picnic Saturday night in Portsmouth

New Park Avenue Picnic includes music, food, family fun — and Saturday night fireworks


Residents in Portsmouth, Tiverton, Little Compton, Fall River and beyond will be treated to a bonus fireworks display this year, with the first-ever Park Avenue Picnic and fireworks show, hosted on the lawn at Thrive Coffee House on Saturday night.

The new, family-friendly event begins at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 7, and features music by the band Diesel, a barbecue, arts and crafts, and the fireworks show at dark.

The Island Park Preservation Society is organizing the picnic/show and is hoping for a large turnout.

They have received all permits, and the same company that launches Bristol’s July 3 fireworks display will be coordinating the Island Park show.
