Andover averted canceling this year’s Jerry Silverman Fourth of July Fireworks show, a real possibility after a Town Meeting amendment passed requiring the Town to use biodegradable fireworks.

That means this year’s Fourth of July holiday will look much like Andover’s past celebrations. This post will be updated through July 4 with more details and additional events.

  1. Hi Dave, Please use the official designation of the Jerry Silverman Fourth of July Fireworks. The event is part of the late-resident’s life-time work in the Town and in 2009, it was memorialized with his name [as you noted in an earlier news story]. Use the accurate naming every time… Andover’s Jerry Silverman Fourth of July Fireworks.

      1. I see that, Dave. Inconsistent messaging in many areas…I’ll aim to address that…
