TRUMBULL — Community members could get a chance to show their support for Trumbull’s annual summer celebration, as the Trumbull Day Commission is considering offering family sponsorships for this year’s event.

“I think it would be great, especially with the whole idea of coming back together as a community,” said committee member Bridget Dial. “I can see families saying, ‘I sponsored Trumbull Day.’ It would be really fun.”

Committee members discussed the possibility of adding the names of family sponsors to a large banner, or placing smaller individual signs throughout the event.

“It would be cool to have signs around the field saying, sponsored by, sponsored by,” said Kathleen McGannon.

The committee agreed to discuss the issue further at its next meeting.

The other action of note was to finalize the dates of this year’s event as July 2 and July 3. The annual fireworks show is scheduled for July 3, with a fireworks rain date of July 10.

The committee had considered moving Trumbull Day up one week to June 25 and June 26 to avoid conflicting with Independence Day on July 4. But based on vendor availability and positive feedback on the proposed July 2-3 weekend, said they decided to keep the date.

Entertainment for the weekend is also taking shape, with a plan to hire a Jimmy Buffett tribute band to headline the weekend.
