First Sunny Summer Sunday Draws

First Sunny Summer Sunday Draws Crowds to Compo
It was the first sunny summer Sunday of the year and scores of Westporters and their guests plopped down on the beach and took the waters of Long Island Sound at Compo Beach.

The parking lots filled quickly during the day as morning rain showers gave way to picture postcard skies in the afternoon. The temperature at the beach stayed in the comfortable low 80s.

Compo Beach goers had the opportunity to purchase car passes for this ThursdayҒs annual fireworks display sponsored by the Police Athletic League (PAL).

The fireworks were held last year at nearby Sherwood Island State Park, much to the disappointment of many Westporters who liked the more intimate and crowded ֖ Compo Beach venue.

PAL was forced to relocate the display to Sherwood Island last year after being unable to secure a barge for launching of the fireworks. This year the group has hired a unit of the well-known Grucci fireworks family, which arranged for a barge.

Rain date for the fireworks is Monday, July 7.
