“The SoundWaters HarborFest is an excellent opportunity for Stamford residents to come together safely and in compliance with CDC guidelines and enjoy all that our City’s stunning Waterfront district has to offer. I look forward to attending the event and once again crowing the victor of the Cardboard Kayak Race with the Mayor’s Trophy,” said Mayor David Martin.
Pet-owners are advised to be aware of the fireworks and take precautions with their animals.
The fireworks can be viewed from Kosciuszko Park located at 200 Elmcroft Rd, along the boardwalk on Southfield Avenue, along the waterfront boardwalk at Harbor Point, and Boccuzzi Park located at 200 Southfield Ave.
