The Oak Bluffs fireworks are set to return August 19 after a two-year pandemic pause, but under town management this year.

The Oak Bluffs fireworks will be cancelled this year due to the pandemic, the town firemen’s civic association said late Wednesday.


The fate of the iconic annual August fireworks show in Oak Bluffs is no longer in jeopardy: Summercamp, formerly the Wesley Hotel, has made a three-year financial commitment to the event.


The 40th anniversary of the annual Oak Bluffs fireworks display will be the biggest yet, and may be the last.


Blankets and beach chairs dotted Ocean Park by early afternoon on Friday as fireworks revelers marked their spots for the annual display.
