July 4th festivities in Burlington

Posted: Updated:

The Fourth of July is just around the corner and the Burlington Independence Day celebration is ready to hit the waterfront with flying colors.

Parks and Recreation officials announced plans to celebrate with music, entertainment, performers and fireworks spectacles. Twilight fireworks are coming back along with the air show, which didn't happen last year due to high waters.

Officials say that the celebration will only continue to get better, bringing in more people every year.

"It's a very special part of Vermont, special part of the country," said Mayor Miro Weinberger, D-Burlington. "Why wouldn't people want to come down and be part of a huge crowd celebrating the Fourth of July?"

The cost of those festivities is around $43,000.

We want you to share what your town is planning for Independence Day celebrations. You can write in on our WCAX-TV Facebook page.
