Upton Men’s Club 2016 Fireworks Festival Date Announced


The Upton Men’s Club (UMC) Annual Fireworks Festival is scheduled for Saturday, June 25.

Last year the event brought in over 5000 people who, as always, enjoyed the best fireworks display put on in this area.

The year’s events will take place from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m. at Blackstone Valley Tech located on Pleasant Street in Upton. Rain date is Sunday, June 26.

The Fireworks Display is funded 100% by donations.

The UMC suggests mailing in a donation with this form to receive an express entry event wristband.

Mail-in and gate donations pay for the Fireworks Display, the funds raised at the Festival help the UMC fund above and beyond programs in the town of Upton that would not otherwise be possible, such as monthly dinners at the Senior Center, ‘Community Service’ scholarships for graduating students, school program assistance, food pantry support, and many other areas of need within our community.

“We are thankful for the support of our town Selectmen, the assistance of the Upton Police and Fire Department personnel, the Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational and Mendon/Upton Regional Schools for the use of their facilities, and most importantly, we thank you, our generous residents, businesses, sponsors, and visitors for your continued donations that finance this wonderful community event,”  said UMC Fireworks Committee Chair Brad DiDio.
