Medfield: Fireworks are for rockers, not hawkers

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 21, 2008 07:59 AM

Medfield town officials have given local merchants permission to hold their annual downtown street fair on Sept. 20, but have decided not to schedule the town's yearly fireworks display to coincide with the event.

Fireworks have been held on Medfield Day, which is sponsored by the Medfield Employers and Merchants Organization, in some recent years, but Selectman Osler Peterson said this year's display would be held the week before, to coincide with the Sept. 13 Fall Fest.

The event showcases high-school rock bands.
