Families gather at Lake Compounce to enjoy the 4th of July fireworks – NBC Connecticut


A display of bright colors kicked off the July 4 holiday weekend at Lake Compounce.

“All my life I’ve been waiting to see fireworks here,” said Aaaliya Cruz.

Some visitors came for the first time to see the pyrotechnic shows.

“My family members usually come here, my aunts, my uncles,” Luis Resto said.

While others returned to the amusement park to see the bright colors as a family tradition.

“Sometimes it gets busy so we sit down…find a little seat to the side. It’s really fun. I love it,” Cathlyn Marinis said.

The 30-minute fireworks display is included with a $54.99 daily admission ticket.

“You can still get on the rides, enjoy the park, if you come early in the day you can enjoy the water park and also stay for the fireworks,” said Lynsey Winters, director of marketing.

The annual show is a favorite for many locals.

“They come with their families and then stay overnight. They can ride the rides at night, which I know is a huge thing that people love with all the lights and stuff,” Winters explained.

There will be another 4th of July fireworks display on Sunday at 9 p.m. In addition, the amusement park will have a show every Saturday in July.
