Connecticut's patriotic tradition reaches its apex in July over the Independence Day weekend. Staged along the Riverfront in Hartford, Riverfest is a celebration of those serving in the armed forces. Fireworks are fired from barges on the river in a musically choreographed show. The ceremony includes a salute to fallen heroes, with a fly-over of four A-10 Thunderbolts.
