Why Not Fireworks in Smithtown?

Many towns have displays, why not here?


We’ve asked around and we are pretty sure, but it’s been a long time, perhaps even never, that the Town of Smithtown has hosted a fireworks show.

With its proximity to the water, several town parks and quite a few beaches, seems like Smithtown has a few great venues for locals to gather and watch a spectacular show. We know budgets are tight, but what do you think?

We’d like to know, has there ever been a town display of fireworks? Would you like to see one? Let us know in our comment section.

In the meantime, check out our

As long as i would be done safely and NOT raise my taxes anymore, I agree to a display. It makes me a nervous wreck with these back yard shows run by people who think they know what they are doing. Besides, (not to be an old croanie) if they are illegal then the people selling them in other states should know they aren't allowed here and take responsibility by being fined for those sales ... Like cigarettes and Beer, lets take action!

I was told that the fireworks display that was held in Flowerfield years ago could not continue because in order to host a display there had to be a firemen in the department that had certification and specialized training in pyrotechnics and the person certified in our area was lost in 9/11.

Every year I drive all the way to Massapequa to see their firework show. It Is a very big community event. Residents (and non residents) get together in a park, sitting on blankets or chairs while enjoying a night out with family and friends ,listening to a band up until the amazing firework display.They also have some food venders there. I wish Smithtown would do something similar.
