Fireworks will begin at dark.

    A big “Thank You” to all who donated to this year’s fireworks. This is a community effort. Every dollar helps to make the fireworks possible. There is an account at TDBank on Main St in Chester that will accept your check made out to “Chester Fireworks” at any time during the coming year.

    Probably too late for this year, but if there was a way to donate online, I’m sure plenty of us expats would kick in!
