The City of Hudson and Hudson Community Foundation (HCF) are partnering to host a special holiday season fireworks display in downtown Hudson on the evening of Saturday, Dec. 3.
“We see this as an opportunity to bring our community together for a family-oriented downtown event at a time of year when the green is festively lit for the holidays and our residents are looking for fun outdoor activities,” said HCF President Amy Jordan. “Moreover, this provides a chance for everyone to shop, dine and celebrate in our vibrant downtown area, supporting local merchants and restaurants that make Hudson unique and special.”
Fireworks will be set off by Hudson-based American Fireworks Company shortly after dusk – at approximately 6:30 p.m. – in a protected area near Veterans Way Park. The best spots for viewing the fireworks display safely will be in the downtown area, including the First & Main Green, the historic greens at SR 91 and SR 303, public sidewalks, and public parking lots in the area of downtown. The best places to park will be the public parking lots downtown, the parking terrace, on street parking areas.
“Bringing this show downtown in December is a classic public-private partnership that includes public resources from the city, supported by private funds generously donated by local citizens through Hudson Community Foundation,” said Chris Foster, City of Hudson President of Council.
Founded in 2000, Hudson Community Foundation’s mission is to enhance the overall quality of life in the Hudson area by increasing charitable giving, educating, and connecting donors to community needs and leading on community issues. The foundation, supported by hundreds of local donors and Donor Advised Funds, operates from an office in the historic Baldwin House on Hudson’s village green and is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
