Town of Pownal Fireworks


HOSTED BY: The Pownal Valley Fair Committee (Community Organization)

PURPOSE: This document serves to show the Town of Pownal and all other interested parties how the Pownal Valley Fair Committee plans to adhere to State COVID-19 guidelines for their fireworks display, scheduled for August 1, 2020.

BACKGROUND: The Pownal Valley Fair has a long history of hosting an annual community fair, which includes a fireworks display in the evening. Due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency, the Committee cancelled the fair portion of this annual event. The committee still plans to host the fireworks display with the following considerations:

LOCATION: The fireworks display is not being "hosted" on the fairgrounds.
  • Families who can view the fireworks from their homes and properties are encouraged to do so.
  • The North portion of the parking lot at the Green Mountain Racetrack will be open for families to come and view the fireworks display.


GUIDELINES FOR GREEN MOUNTATIN RACETRACK PARKING LOT:
  • Attendees are asked to watch the fireworks display from their cars.
  • Attendees are encouraged to remain in their cars. If they sit outside of their cars, they are asked to stay within 6 feet of their car and to maintain social distance. Masks encouraged.
  • Cars are to be parked at least 6 feet apart.
  • There will be no large gatherings outside of cars.
  • No tailgating.
  • No loitering. All attendees must leave the parking lot after the fireworks display.
