New Hope — Lambertville fireworks return


Fireworks will again delight onlookers who fill the river towns on the first Friday of the month to enjoy a display over the Delaware River.

With the support of The Greater New Hope Chamber of Commerce and New Hope Celebrates, the fireworks will return May 17, in conjunction with PrideFest. From June through September, on first Fridays, the shows will launch from a barge off the Waterloo Street ramp, about 500 feet from the New Hope-Lambertville Free Bridge, organizers said.

Hundreds typically gather on the bridge, which has just undergone maintenance work, for a great view of the display.

Parking will be available at New Hope-Solebury High School, Union Square and Lambertville Station. Some locations require a fee.

About six years ago the popular displays came to halt, amid financial challenges. The shows then were estimated to cost about $12,000. They were reignited last year with funds from an anonymous donor.
