Somerville To Set Off Their Fireworks On July 1st...In Ward 5, As Always!

Join the entire city as we celebrate our Fourth of July three days early on July 1st with fireworks and a performance by The Sunsetters at Trum Field.

This will be Ward 5 Online's introductory year to the annual fireworks display, however, it's definitely not the first time I've thrown my two cents online regarding the spectacle that lights up the Somerville sky (and sets off many Somerville car alarms).

The entertainment schedule is as follows:
* 6:00 pm: Somerville Sunsetters
* 6:30 pm: Booty Vortex
* 7:30 pm: USO Metropolitan New York Performers
* 8:30 pm: U.S. Navy Band Northeast Pops Ensemble
* 9:15 pm: Fireworks

As always...

Where do they set off the actual fireworks? I assume/hope it's not at Trum Field itself...
