Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce

The Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce announced that it will no longer host fireworks festivals due to safety concerns in the wake of last year’s bomb threat.

The Jaffrey Festival of Fireworks was one of the largest fireworks events in New England for the past 22 years. Co-Chair Cyndy Burgess says the Jaffrey police performed a security assessment and filed a report to the chamber.

Police have canceled this weekend’s fireworks festival in Jaffrey because of a bomb threat.
