The fireworks display will be on Sunday, December 11th, 2016. The Display will start at 6 pm sharp with free hot dogs, coffee and cocoa to the public starting at 5:00 (donations welcome). This is an annual event. It is a way for the volunteer services in the Town of Sodus and Chamber of Commerce to say thank you to the public for everyone’s support throughout the year.
Donations are welcome and proceeds go to the next years fireworks. The event takes place at 7863 Ridge Road in Wallington at the Fire station. Parking is first come basis but we have lots of room. It is beautiful in the snow.
Watch the 2010 WFD Christmas Holiday Fireworks Display!

Letter from Past Chief Burkhard of the Wallington Fire Department:
The Wallington Fire Department and Chamber of Commerce will stage the annual Community Christmas Fireworks as it has done since 1998 (with the exception of 2005). The production will be on the second Sunday prior to Christmas at the Fire Hall. The Fire Hall will be open at 4:30 p.m. and fireworks will start at 6:00 p.m. sharp. We are asking local businesses and individuals to help with the cost of this event.
- Our ROCKET sponsors will be donating $200 or more and the Sodus Chamber of Commerce is already in this category.
- The FIRECRACKER supporter will be contributing $100 to $199,
- and the SPARKLERS will be giving $25 to $99.
Ads will be placed in the local papers thanking contributors and noting their level of participation. The general public will also be able to show their support within these levels and the Firemen will be “passing the boot” the night of the fireworks. Members of SESA (Sodus Emergency Services Association) which includes all the fire departments and ambulance services, are always invited to come early and enjoy chili and hots as a way of saying “thank you” for all that they do. As a contributor, you would also be invited to come early, enjoy a bowl of chili and get a good parking spot to see the show!
If you’ve never been, you don’t know that you’re missing one of the finest, and longest, fireworks display in the area, including downtown Rochester. Fireworks in the winter is an entirely new experience and one that both young and old “oohhh” and “aaahhh” over.
Checks should be made out to the Wallington Fire Dept and mailed to PO Box 57, Sodus NY 14551. Your contribution may be tax deductible since we are a non profit organization. (Our department is owned by the Wallington Engine Co. and contracts with the Town of Sodus for fire protection.) If you need further information please contact Fred Burkhard (483- 8937 -email@example.com) from the Wallington Fire Dept or Mary Jane Mumby (483-4067 – firstname.lastname@example.org) from the Sodus Chamber of Commerce.
Thank you for helping us bring about this dazzling and sparkling Christmas tradition.
