STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford Mayor David Martin will hold a press conference Friday morning on the status of the threatened Fourth of July holiday fireworks display.

In April, the mayor said the estimated $100,000 fireworks show could be on the chopping block due to budget trimming.

The fireworks had been restored in 2013 after a three-year hiatus due to budget cuts when then-Mayor Michael Pavia announced private funding had been secured for the event.

A press release from Martin gave no hint of what he will announce.

The Daily Voice will post a story as soon as an announcement is made on Friday.

Mayor should just get a company to sponsor it and put signs on the barges, and in the best viewing areas like Cummings. Either that or bring in an international fireworks competition you could tie in to 4th of July. Google "The Casino du Lac-Leamy Sound of Light show" and read about what they do in Ottawa. Multiple nights of fireworks too!
