YORKTOWN, N.Y.-The Yorktown Chamber of Commerce is sick and tired of winter.

Antarctic-like temperatures on Dec. 31 canceled the chamber’s annual New Year’s Eve Ball Drop. Much like Yorktown’s residents, the fireworks that were planned to welcome 2018 with a bang have been in storage ever since, waiting for the weather to warm up.

On Saturday, March 24, a fireworks show four months in the making will unofficially kick off the spring season. That will happen at the end of the Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural SpringFest, which will run from 2 to 9 p.m. on the Veterans Road field at the Yorktown firehouse.

“Everybody’s been cooped up in their house,” said Eric DiBartolo, president of the Chamber of Commerce. “We want them to just come out and shake off the blues.”
