JAFFREY, N.H. (AP) - Two years after an annual fireworks show in New Hampshire was called off because of threats, the event is returning this summer.
The August Festival of Fireworks had been a tradition in Jaffrey. But in 2012, the police chief canceled it after the department received a report threatening violence at the event. The Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce and the Keene Sentinel received similar threatening communications.
WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1oRXMiD) Atlas PyroVision Products said the festival will be held on Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Cheshire Fairgrounds in Swanzey. It will still be hosted by the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce.
Tickets go on sale on May 1, and will only be available online.
