Typically when we think of fireworks we think of the 4th of July, but the town of Newburgh decided to do things a bit differently. They recently made the decision to move the annual firework show from the 4th of July to Labor Day Weekend.  The town of Newburgh cited the unpredictable river levels in July as the reason they decided to no longer go with a 4th of July fireworks show and instead move it to Labor Day weekend.
