While this year may look different in Wilton for Independence Day, residents can still be patriotic and enjoy the holiday. Here is the July 4, 2021 weekend guide.
No July 4 Fireworks
While Wilton residents had hoped to look forward to the annual fireworks display, there will be no town-sponsored events this year. As GOOD Morning Wilton previously reported, there was too much uncertainty about whether large gatherings would still be limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That unpredictability left no time for adequate planning.
Merwin Meadows will be open to both residents and non-residents on Sunday, July 4. Day passes are available for purchase at the Parks and Recreation office Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. — which makes Friday the last day for both residents and non-residents to get day passes before the holiday. Seasonal passes are currently sold out for non-residents. The grills in the park are now available for use for anyone who wants to barbeque at the park.
Updated Hours — What’s Open
Village Market will be closing an hour earlier on Sunday, July 4, and will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The rest of the weekend the store will operate at normal hours (7 a.m.-7 p.m.).
