Fireworks 2020 Statement

The First Night Bradford Committee Members were very disappointed in the fireworks finale brought to us by Skylighters Fireworks of Orchard Park, NY. This company had excellent credentials – the proper permits and necessary approvals were all completed and approved by the City of Bradford and Fire Chief Eric Taylor.
We understand the community is concerned, as we were about the unfortunate situation that happened with the fireworks New Year’s Eve.
We regret what happened, however, Skylighters Fireworks, contracted by us, was fully vetted.
Fire Chief Eric Taylor has been in close contact with Matt Shaw, the owner of the fireworks company.
Since the welfare and safety of the people in our community is our utmost concern, we will be looking at various options for the finale and ball drop for next year.
