The show had to be rescheduled from Thursday due to rain, and Saturday brought perfect weather. The annual event is organized by the Shelton Parks and Recreation Department, with help from various city departments and fire officials.

The night began with a concert by the Glamour Girls, followed by the Shelton fireworks once it was dark as well as the Derby fireworks just across the river.
