Despite a windy afternoon on Friday, the Oak Bluffs fireworks proceeded as scheduled at 9 pm, with a long display of booms and bursts above Ocean Park and surrounding beaches. After sunset, as the park began to fill in with picnic blankets, lawn chairs, and children armed with glowsticks, the Vineyard Haven Band played its repertoire of jouncy American tunes. Crowds stayed cheering straight through the grand finale, and many remained in town for a nightcap of ice cream or drinks. The fireworks are hosted by the Oak Bluffs Fireman’s Civic Association.
