UPDATE: The event has been rescheduled due to bad weather on Aug. 11. Below is a message from the Cheshire Fire Department:

Our Cruz Nite and Fireworks show has been cancelled for today. That’s the bad news. The good news is the entire event has been re-scheduled for Thursday August 30th. We will have our classic cars, food and fun followed by our awesome fireworks show! Come down and join us then!!! Thank you for all your support!!!!

To coincide with the town of Cheshire's 225th year long birthday celebration, is the 26th annual Cruz Night and Fireworks happening Saturday August 11.

The Civil War Encampment goes all day while participants from Boston reenact events that took place as soldiers came through the town of Cheshire during the civil war. "It's like a living museum", says Tim Garner, Chief of Police for The Town of Cheshire and volunteer firefighter.

4:00 PM is the car show, food, raffles, rock wall and more. You can check out over 100 cars during the car show. All money collected from the sale of any food goes directly toward the cost of the fireworks.

5:00 PM and 7:30 PM is the free bicycle stunt show put on by some amazing professionals. A must see!

7:00 PM is live music from the band "Shut Up and Dance"

9:30 PM is a fireworks spectacular display of around 4000 dollars worth!
