Wellington To Continue Its Decades-Long Tradition Of Holiday Fireworks On Independe nce Day BY M. DENNIS TAYLOR

As this summer brings hopes of a return to something approaching normal, the Village of Wellington is planning a community celebration to make residents feel a bit like it is an Independence Day from years past. Included in the festivities will be the presentation of what is possibly the best fireworks display available in Palm Beach County. Assistant Community Services Director Michelle Garvey is responsible for coordinating this year’s Fourth of July celebration, which will be conducted safely outside at Village Park on Pierson

Road. As of May, plans were still underway, with complete details available in June. There are still sponsorships and vendor spaces available, but the biggest news is the magnitude of the Zambelli fireworks display. Zambelli is renowned as one of the best fireworks display providers, entertaining area residents for generations. Founded in Italy in 1893, the familyowned business is now located in Pennsylvania and has provided the spectacular shows for Wellington throughout the years. These include past celebra-

tions of Independence Day, as well as New Year’s Eve, which is also the anniversary of the incorporation of the Village of Wellington. “Our objective is to put the most shells of anywhere in the county in the air during the 20-minute display,” Garvey said. The celebration will be a day of family fun topped off by the impressive fireworks display. “Last year, we shot off the fireworks from two locations, but now everything will be at Village Park,” Garvey said. wellington the magazine | june 2021 63
