Every August in Jaffrey, Atlas Fireworks produces a 30-minute themed fireworks display choreographed with music. Upwards of 30,000 people come to watch. If you’re an aficionado of pyrotechnics, plan to come early – doors open at 4 – and the best viewing spots get taken quickly. To while away the time until the main show, there are typical fair amusements and food stands, and even a skydiving show. Many attendees bring picnic supplies and camp out on the tarmac.
