On behalf of the Family Fourth Committee, I would like to thank all who supported the 39th Annual New Canaan Family Fourth Celebration at Waveny Park by purchasing an entrance pass and attending this Independence Day celebration. Your financial support makes this great New Canaan tradition possible; whether you drove in or walked in, thank you for buying an entrance pass and supporting the event.
The fireworks show was spectacular. It was another memorable 4th of July celebration….an outstanding evening of family fun, wonderful music, great food and a fantastic fireworks display.
We offer a big thank you to the New Canaan Family Fourth volunteer Committee—Robin Bates-Mason, Steve Benko, Scott Cluett, Chris Cody, Wendy Dixon Fog, Win Goodrich, Sue Holland, Suzanne Jonker, Steve Parrett, Doug Richardson, Andrew Walsh, Maria Weingarten and Pat Wood—as well as all of the following. The show could not have gone on without their endless energy, hard work and commitment:
Fire Department and Fire Marshal
Police Department and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
New Canaan EMS
Master of Ceremonies Dan Taylor
Town Band and Mind the Gap Band
Kidz on the Go soft-play activity centers
The gourmet food trucks and vendors
The Exchange Club of New Canaan
Our special benefactors

All of the volunteers who worked from early morning, to very late at night, to set up and take down the necessary infrastructure and equipment.
