Don’t miss Port Royal’s fireworks “do-over,” scheduled for 8:15 p.m. Friday at The Sands in Port Royal.

The show as rescheduled after a disappointing July 4 fireworks display.

Town of Port Royal Mayor Joe DeVito promised a make-up show sometime in the fall. In mid-August, DeVito settled on Labor Day Weekend for the make-up show.

The town’s traditional July 4 fireworks display started an hour and a half late and was extremely abbreviated. According to DeVito, at the time, a wiring issue was to blame.

“We hope that you can come back out and enjoy this event,” DeVito said in August, “and we look forward to seeing everybody.”
