Mystic Bascule Bridge 100th Anniversary Fireworks Celebration – Mystic Seaport Museum
October 15 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Celebrate the Mystic Bascule Bridge 100th Anniversary at Mystic Seaport Museum and view the fireworks! Organized by the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, this celebration recognizes that the Bascule Bridge, first opened on July 19, 1922, has been a staple part of Mystic life for a century. A bascule bridge is a moveable bridge with a counterweight that balances as the bridge rises, allowing modern and historic ships alike to pass with ease.
Commemorate this historic event from the river’s edge at Mystic Seaport Museum! Bring a chair and set up along the waterfront to get a perfect view. Before the show, play lawn games on the Village Green, grab a drink from Schaefer’s Spouter Tavern, and enjoy a musical performance by local favorite Wooly Mammoth. From rock to bluegrass to Americana folk, Wooly Mammoth will create an energetic atmosphere to ring in the bridge’s centennial celebration!
Enter through the South Entrance. Doors open at 6:00 and fireworks begin at 8:15 pm.
Free for members, and included for visitors who have paid General Admission / $10 for non-members arriving at 6pm
