Bombs Burst In Air: “06880” Readers Are There

Everyone in Westport has a different view of the fireworks.

And nearly everyone, it seems, sent at least one to “06880.”

Last night’s pre-July 4th celebration was — as always — festive, fun, colorful, big, cool and wonderful.

Here’s a variety of scenes, as captured by our readers.

Thanks to all. Happy birthday, America!

Can you find yourself in Charlie Scott’s drone view?
